A few years ago we launched a charitable giving fund where we gave away £1,000 each month to local causes that make a difference in the community. We’re delighted to say we’re doing it again from July and hope to help numerous worthy causes in areas where we build new homes.
Caring for the community is one of our core values. We’ve helped local sports clubs, community support groups, charities supporting diseases such as cancer research, charities helping wounded soldiers, hospices, hospitals and village halls – and we want to help even more this year.
We’d like to hear from local charities in the towns and villages of each of our current and future developments launching this year. Our only criteria is that the charity benefits local people, because we’re fully committed to enhancing the communities in which we operate. That means we won’t be able to accept fundraising requests for any schemes where our support will be directed abroad.
How do you apply?
Visit our charity page to complete your application. We want to know a little about your charity and who the donation will benefit. Our first charity will be awarded £1,000 in July and each month thereafter for the next 12 months.
As you might realise we expect to receive a lot of applications so please be mindful of this and bear with us. We won’t be able to reply straight away but don’t worry you’ll receive a notification to let you know that we have received your application.
Applications will be reviewed on a monthly basis in advance of the next month’s charitable donation.
Did you know we’ve also recently partnered with the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust to create 100 hectares of beautiful new woodland across the Yorkshire Dales over the next two years? You can find out more about that partnership and view some of our other beneficiaries on our charity page.
