We are currently building new homes at Hackwood Grange, in Mickleover, Foxbridge Manor, in Castle Donington, and The Nook, in Etwall.
We have presented Sight Support Derbyshire, Derbyshire Refugees Solidarity and Etwall Community Project Group with donations as part of our Community Fund initiative.
The fund, which started in 2020, aims to help local organisations with specific donations and give them the tools they need to continue to thrive, with local causes across the East Midlands invited to apply for their share of a £5,000 pot each year.
In Derbyshire, we have donated £600 to Sight Support Derbyshire, a local organisation which provides vital services, support and advice to adults and children across the region who are blind or partially sighted.
Sight Support Derbyshire is primarily volunteer-led, with volunteers working hard to help improve the mental and physical wellbeing of visually impaired people within the community. The organisation helps support people to retain independence, providing equipment and information to make their life easier, as well as hosting a range of social activities at museums, parks and theatres, to bring people together and help foster friendships.
Derbyshire Refugees Solidarity received a £300 share of the pot to support the important work the charity is doing for the community, while Etwall Community Project Group also received a donation of £300.
Ryan O’Sullivan, sales director for our East Midlands division, said: “We’re committed to creating thriving communities within the local area and are proud to support these charities and organisations in Derbyshire with the valuable work they do. All of these groups provide a vital service to our community, and we’re delighted to donate funds to help Sight Support Derbyshire, Derbyshire Refugee Solidarity and Etwall Community Project Group continue their wonderful work!”
