Taylor Wimpey - Community Chest appeal

We are talking about the Berkhamsted & Tring Gazette and Taylor Wimpey community chest award.

Two local charities have been shortlisted to scoop £500 - and its up to you to 
decide who will get it.

Jack Costello, sales and marketing director for 
Taylor Wimpey North Thames, which is building new homes at its Bearroc Park development in Berkhamsted, said: “We are delighted to see these worthy causes nominated by readers of the Gazette.

“These incredible organisations do fantastic work within the local community – and it’s now down to the readers to decide which will receive the £500 cash award.”

Gazette content editor Ben Raza said: “It took a lot of work to cut down to a final two, but we are sure that either charity would benefit from this money.

“Now it’s down to you - tell us which group should get the cash.

“And you can read the 
results in a future edition of the Gazette.”
