How we help

We’ve helped local sports clubs, community support groups, charities supporting diseases such as cancer research, charities helping wounded soldiers, hospices and hospitals, village halls and many more.

Over the next 12 months we’d like to give away £1,000 to a local charity each and every month for the next 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.

Do you know of a charity that might need our support in Haworth, Glusburn, Sabden, Harden, Cowpe (Rossendale), Barnoldswick or Shipley?

Charities we’ve already helped

By donating our land for parking before development began in Haworth at The Bridge, we helped raise thousands of pounds to benefit soldiers in the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army Royal Navy, Royal Marines, The British Army and the RAF. The charity helps both serving soldiers and veterans, and their families.

In June 2016 we fundraised for the Royal Manchester Children’s Charity by walking the Yorkshire Three Peaks, after a colleague lost a family member to leukaemia. With the help of our suppliers and consultants, we raised £30,000 for the charity which was awarded to the leukaemia unit to help further their support for children and their families.

As part of our former Community Support Scheme a few years ago we donated £12,000 to twelve different causes in the local area around Skipton. Beneficiaries included Sutton Brass Band, SELFA Children’s Charity, the Firefighters Charity in Skipton as well as a number of local schools.

Sports clubs bring people together and are an essential part of the community. With this in mind, we have been happy to help local sports clubs over the years. Our most recent donation was to the Skipton Scorpions, of Skipton Cricket Club. Our help allowed them to create another junior team.

Creating beautiful living spaces that everyone can enjoy

Skipton Properties and Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust have teamed up to plant over 250 trees over the next year to create beautiful woodlands that everyone can enjoy.

As a traditional family business, with strong heritage values, it is our pleasure to support the Trust’s vital work. Together we can plant hundreds of trees, inspire more people with natural world and to get out into the countryside to improve wellbeing and learn new skills.

How do you apply?

Firstly, please ensure that your charity benefits local people. We won’t be able to donate to locals fundraising for international charities – we believe that charity starts at home!

Over the next 12 months we’d like to give away £1,000 to a local charity each and every month for the next 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.

Please submit your applications using the form below – we’d like to know a little about your chosen charity, how the money might be spent and the local people it supports.

You’ll receive a notification to show that we have received your application. Applications will be reviewed on a monthly basis in advance of the next month’s charitable donation.

The first award will be in July. Please bear with us whilst we review them. We are getting a lot of applications and we’re afraid we can’t respond to them all. If you aren’t successful in the first month, your application will roll into the next month an so on.
