TWEA Directors Challenge 2011 - 30km Walk.

Event date: 28th May 2011

Mark Edmonds is raising money for Beans Means Brains

My story

The Directors at Taylor Wimpey East Anglia are at it again.

Following their previous charity events such as the head-spinning abseil off the Rotunda at Ickworth House in 2009, and a toe-toasting fire walk in 2010, this years event is less about adrenaline, and more about physical pain (although the fire walk always had that potential!).

On Saturday the 28th May 2011, the 6 directors of TWEA will walk 30km from Bury St Edmunds to Needham Market raising funds to complete the construction of, and hopefully help equip a new nursery school being built in the village of Kakooko in Uganda. The route of the walk (and even a video flythrough) can be viewed at the following web site Any additional money raised will go towards the Beans Means Brains project that provides school dinners for the school children of Uganda, offering them not only much needed nutrition, but also a fantastic incentive to attend.

To further extend the School theme, the walk will start at Abbotts Green Primary School on Moreton Hall in Bury St Edmunds. This school is built on land provided by Taylor Wimpey as part of their development, and its construction was also part-funded by the company. As part of this event Taylor Wimpey are providing a further £1,000 to the school in 2011 to help renew some of their IT equipment.

The finish post for the walk is Taylor Wimpey East Anglias as yet undeveloped site at the former Unilever factory site on Needham Market High Street. Discussions are underway with Mid Suffolk District Council and Needham Market Town Council to agree a scheme of beautiful new homes on the site. Needham Market Middle School is only a stones throw from the site, and to link to both the school and the Uganda theme, Taylor Wimpey will be donating a further £1,000 towards their fundraising for the 'Possibilities' charity which aims to reduce financial hardship among children living in Uganda by relieving poverty and by improving conditions in socially disadvantaged communities.

We would be very grateful for your support, for what I am sure you will agree are some very worthwhile causes. You are also more than welcome to see us off from the start, welcome us in at the finish, or for the more foolhardy - you could join us for the walk!

Donations and/or pledges can be made on this page, or alternatively forwarded directly to the Taylor Wimpey East Anglia head office in Bury St Edmunds.

If you would like any additional information about the walk, or the charities involved, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks,

Mark Edmonds
