In all, they have donated £12,000 to support causes close to the hearts of its team members as part of its ongoing Community Fund scheme.
During 2019, a different charity each month benefited from the Community Fund scheme, highlighting the housebuilder’s dedication to supporting the communities in which it builds.
The money raised as part of the scheme, which launched in 2019, is in addition to £73,000 raised last year for the housebuilder’s charity of the year, the UK Sepsis Trust.
Yorkshire East’s first donation of £1,000 was given to Great Ormond Street Hospital in support of Senior Site Manager, Ben Waines’ son, Henry, who was finally bought back home after some 440 days in the hospital.
Her Breast Friend is a charity run entirely by volunteers who have each been affected by breast cancer, Dove House Hospice specialises in palliative care for people in the local community with life-limiting illnesses.
While the Royal British Legion provides lifelong support to serving and ex-serving service personnel and their families.
Daniel Smith, Managing Director of Barratt Developments Yorkshire East, commented:
“We are always looking for ways to support the communities in which we build. So we’re thrilled to have been able to donate £1,000 to each of these worthy charities and organisations with our Community Fund scheme throughout 2019.”
“We’re now looking forward to working closely with the local communities across East Yorkshire to offer support to 12 more charities in 2020.”
