A BARRHEAD charity is to benefit from a series of cash boosts after linking up with a major housebuilder.

Include Me 2 Club (IM2C) is to receive £25 from Taylor Wimpey West Scotland for each new home sold and legally completed within the first phase of new properties at its Duncarnock development, in Barrhead.

In total, a grand sum of £3,625 will be paid to the organisation, which works with children, young people and adults with additional support needs, as the development progresses.

Paul McIlvenny, co-founder of IM2C, said: “We are extremely grateful for the support that we have received from Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, and we can’t thank them enough for their generous donation.

“This money will be put to work locally to help us deliver our range of projects to the local community in Barrhead.

“On behalf of everyone who uses our service in Barrhead, I would like to say a huge thank you.”

The link-up follows a £1,000 donation paid to the charity earlier this year, which contributed to the free community fun day that was staged to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee at the beginning of June.

The event proved a roaring success with thousands of people turning out to enjoy the entertainment, funfair, and stalls set up in the town’s Cowan Park.

Audrey Ross, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, added: “We are delighted to be able to support the Include Me 2 Club in this meaningful way.

“Our announcement signals the creation of a relationship with a very worthy local charity that will provide a link between the new community emerging at our Duncarnock development, and the existing community of Barrhead.

“Working with the Include Me 2 Club is a real honour and we are extremely proud to be showing our support in this way.

“Being able to work with local charities and organisations that surround our developments means a great deal to us.

“It’s always lovely to know that we are helping to make a difference to the lives of people in our local communities.”
