The first Marford Guides unit has been running for more than 30 years and aims to empower local girls aged 10-14 through a range of indoor and outdoor activities. Part of this is through trips around the country, and this summer the leaders were keen to take the girls to see the sights of London.

They were keen for the group to have matching hoodies and T-shirts and approached Taylor Wimpey, who are building new homes at the nearby Kings Moat Garden Village development in Wrexham Road, Chester, to help. The housebuilder donated £300 to ensure that 25 Guides and their leader could have custom outfits for the trip.


Jennifer Burns, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey North West, said: "We were happy to be able to extend our support to the first Marford Guides by providing them with personalised T-shirts and hoodies as they embarked on their journey to explore the vibrant city of London and create countless joyful memories.”

Sarah Happs, 1st Marford Guides leader, said:  "The trip to London was a special one for the Guides as they got to explore the city and make new memories together.

"We are grateful for Taylor Wimpey’s donation as the customised T-shirts and hoodies made the trip extra memorable."
