Doncaster-based house builder Albemarle Homes has invested £16,000 in communities around its developments in the last year.
MD Darryl Barker said: “We understand that there are many elements that make a house a home and that not all of those are to do with bricks and mortar.
“As a family-run housebuilder, we know that people whether they be family, neighbours or local community members are important in making you feel at home, that is why we pledged our support to a number of organisations in the local area that would help local people, including our homebuyers, feel that where they call home is a great place to live.”
The organisations and charities that have benefitted from Albemarle Homes’ support include, the Doncaster and Bassetlaw NHS Charity Trust which has received a cheque for £6,400. The money has been donated by the housebuilder on behalf of all its home buyers throughout 2022. The money will go towards supporting staff and patients at the Trust with a range of needs.
Albemarle Homes has also supported the sporting community which plays an important role in bringing people together. Those benefitting include the Doncaster swimming organisation DARTES, Barnby Dun Cricket Club, Doncaster Ladies Golf Club and Beckingham Bowls Club, all of which run alongside the housebuilder’s long-standing relationship with Doncaster Rovers and Doncaster Knights.
Children at Shaw Wood primary school also recently enjoyed taking part in a competition run by Albemarle Homes to win prizes for their artwork depicting a home of the future, the winning designs are proudly hung in a gallery style setting at the housebuilder’s sales centre in Armthorpe. And a donation of chocolate eggs made sure that children unfortunate enough to be spending Easter in hospital had a little treat to make them smile.
Darryl aded: “As a local housebuilder we think it is extremely important to give back to our local community and ensure that our support will actually help make a difference to the lives of people living in our great city. We are proud to have supported a range of charities and organisations and will continue to help make a positive difference in the areas in which we build.”
