Troon RNLI Lifeboat Station is to receive more than £5,000 as part of a community partnership with a local housebuilding company. 

Taylor Wimpey West Scotland will donate £25 for each new home sold and legally completed at its new developments in Troon’s Princess Gate and Queens Court.  

In total, a grand sum of £5,650 will be paid to the RNLI, and this substantial donation will go directly to the local RNLI Troon Lifeboat Station.  

The donation signals a long-term relationship between Taylor Wimpey West Scotland and the RNLI with the money contributing towards the amazing life-saving services the RNLI Troon Lifeboat Station provides.  

The charity aims to use volunteers wherever possible and with voluntary donations, this donation contributes to funds which are necessary to make this achievable and will help with the RNLI’s overall aim to keep lives safe at sea.  

The RNLI has a vital role within the community of Troon, and the local lifeboat station covers the lower Firth of Clyde with its two lifeboats. The crew members are dedicated to keeping the local community safe and they have received three RNLI medals for gallantary.  

Urda Cotter from the RNLI 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 achieve the overall aim of our service to the local community. On behalf of everyone at RNLI, I would like to say a huge thank you.”  

Audrey Ross, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, added: “We are delighted to be able to support the RNLI at its Troon Lifeboat Station.  

“Our announcement signals the creation of a relationship with this very worthy cause that will provide a link between the new community that will emerge at Princess Gate and Queens Court, and the existing community of Troon.  

“Working with the RNLI 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, and it’s always lovely to know that we are helping to make a difference to the lives of people in our local communities.”  

Taylor Wimpey West Scotland’s donation to RNLI is one of the many contributions being made by the housebuilder towards community facilities and infrastructure in the wider area.
