Amber Foundation named as Taylor Wimpey's chosen charity
A GROUP that supports troubled young people has been named as a housing developer's chosen charity.
The Amber Foundation, which has a residential base in Ockley, is one of six homeless charities that will receive support from Taylor Wimpey.
The partnership has been set up with Centrepoint, which works with vulnerable 16 to 25-year-olds in London and the North East.
Maria Pilfold, head of Taylor Wimpey's charity committee, said: "We have worked with Centrepoint as our national charity partner for the past two years, and homelessness was a cause that our employees wanted us to continue to support.

"However, we were keen to look at ways in which we could widen that support to some of the local communities, such as those in the southern counties, where a number of our new developments are based.
"We decided on this innovative partnership idea and are delighted that Amber is a part of that."
Taylor Wimpey will raise money for the charity throughout 2012 through fundraising events, staff fundraising and corporate donations.
