Clitheroe-based charity, The Foundation for Ribble Valley Families, has been given a cash boost from leading homebuilder, Taylor Wimpey, to help fund its crèche facility, which helps to provide childcare for adults on its training programme.

The recently-established charity has been given a donation of £600 from the homebuilder, which will be used to support the future training and employment opportunities for vulnerable adults in the Ribble Valley.

Fiona Owen, director at The Foundation for Ribble Valley Families, said: “The Ribble Valley has always been perceived as an affluent area, however there are quite a number of families who struggle with the day-to-day cost of living, which is what we help with.

“We’re incredibly grateful to Taylor Wimpey for the support the team has provided us with – and the money will go a long way in supporting our Adult Learning Crèche Worker Scheme.”

The Foundation for Ribble Valley Families helps the most vulnerable families in its reach area to help improve social and wellbeing.

Chloe Dunn, associate sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, explained: “The Foundation for Ribble Valley Families is a relatively new charity, and the impact of the work that it is doing throughout the region is already just fantastic.

“We’re thrilled to be supporting such an amazing cause, and it’s great to see how far our donation has gone in helping so many families.”

The charity is based at Ribblesdale Children’s Centre and Nursery School, just a short distance from Taylor Wimpey’s Ribble Meadows development.

Fiona added: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Taylor Wimpey for this support.

“It truly is very much appreciated by both the whole team, as well as all of the families we help.”
