Our CSR programme is committed to giving back to each of the local communities in which we build. During the construction phase of each development we donate £1,000 to go toward education in the area of each site.
Over the last six months we’re proud to have given back to the following communities:
For our Mersey Reach development in Aintree, Liverpool, we teamed up with the main contractor, Caddick Construction, to donate £2,000 to Netherton Park Neighbourhood Centre.
Netherton Park Neighbourhood Centre is a safe place for all ages to learn, play and socialise. The donation was used to purchase new computers for their ICT suite, providing locals speedy and reliable internet access. The facilities are available to members of the community for studying, assignments, job hunting and more. With these new computers, they were able to distribute the old computers to children and young people who have not had internet access to complete homework during lockdown.
The team at our Panorama development in Dartford donated £1,000 to Temple Hill Primary Academy.
Temple Hill Primary Academy caters for children aged 3 – 11 years, with a wide variety of needs. The donation was used to boost the schools outdoor learning provision, through the purchase of high-quality outdoor benches, providing pupils with a space to sit and work. Seeing the amazing learning benefits from having more time in the outdoors was the key driver of this.
In Ipswich, the team at our Cranes site, and site vendor, AquiGen, teamed up and donated £2,000 to Inspire Suffolk.
Inspire Suffolk is a successful youth charity that specialises in youth interventions for young people who are NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) or at risk of becoming NEET. They deliver a wide range of education and sports initiatives that improve health, confidence and self-esteem.
With the support of donations from Chancerygate and AquaGen, Inspire Suffolk’s new Stay & Play provision aims to give parents the confidence, skills and knowledge to engage with their child’s soft skill development. Through activities like crafts and sport, parents will have the chance to find ways of capturing their children’s imagination while they learn.
Construction at Tonbridge Trade Park is about to get underway, and we’ve donated £1,000 to Tonbridge Angels Football Academy.
Tonbridge Angels Football Academy is an educational programme in partnership with Hugh Christie school to deliver a variety of qualifications to 16-19-year-old learners of varying abilities and backgrounds. They currently have 45 students enrolled on the programme and run three teams in three different leagues. The donation was used to purchase a Veo sports camera. The camera has enabled them to record training and matches so they can conduct video analysis with their players to help improve their football skills.
