Barratt Developments Yorkshire East raises over £25k for SASH

Local housebuilder Barratt Developments Yorkshire East has raised an impressive £25,300 in support of its charity of the year for 2021, Safe and Sound Homes (SASH), with a donation also being made to Sepsis UK in honour of the division’s former Managing Director, Paul Newman.

Over 200 guests gathered at York Racecourse on Friday 1st October for ‘The Red Ball’, the annual charity hosted by the local housebuilder aimed to raise funds and awareness for SASH and the UK Sepsis Trust. Charitable donations were raised through ticket and table sales, a raffle, and a silent auction.

SASH operates across North and East Yorkshire helping young people aged 16-25 who are facing homelessness. On average, the local charity helps over 300 young people to avoid homelessness each year and offers a ‘Nightstop’ project which provides immediate help during a time of crisis, and supports individuals to find permanent accommodation.

Daniel Smith, Managing Director of Barratt Developments Yorkshire East, commented: “I would like to extend my gratitude to each and every individual who attended our annual Red Ball charity event, with a special thanks to the charity committee who organised such a special night; as well as all of our suppliers, sub-contractors, consultants, solicitors, land agents and fellow housebuilders who offered support.

“We are delighted to have raised such an amazing sum of money for charities very close to our hearts. I look forward to future fundraising events where I hope to see even more invaluable funds raised.”
