Redrow set up the community fund of £5,000 at the end of the summer and invited local causes to apply for a proportion of the funds.
After a fantastic response, the housebuilder has chosen the causes they would like to support and is linking up with 10 local community groups.
The beneficiaries, and how they will be spending the funds, are:
Redrow is currently building a collection of beautiful three, four and five-bedroom homes at Meadow Brook in Tattenhall following the success of its Chestnut Grange venture in the village.
Jason Newton, sales director for Redrow Homes (NW), said: “We were thrilled by the reaction to the community fund and the variety of causes and ideas that came forward. It was incredibly hard to make a decision as to who we should support but 10 causes were chosen and we can’t wait to see the impact the donations make on the local community.”
Louise Gibson, who applied on behalf of the Rainbows group who, along with the funds for their engineering badges, will also be treated to a special visit to Redrow’s site, said: “We’re really grateful for the funds and time Redrow has donated to our group, it will make a huge difference and will hopefully spark an interest in engineering, science or construction. The girls in the group range from five to seven years old and we are always trying to find unusual and new experiences so they are very lucky to be able to get this opportunity from Redrow. They are really excited about seeing the badge put into action and learning how science and engineering can be used in housebuilding.”
