East Midlands housebuilder opens up £5,000 community fund

Redrow East Midlands has launched a scheme to support deserving community initiatives across the region.

The East Midlands division has created the £5,000 community fund to support as many local groups, organisations and good causes as possible, and is now welcoming applications.

There’s no cause too small, so whether funds are required for art supplies to help local pupils to get creative, a search and rescue team are in need of new lifejackets or a local children’s group wish to go on their first ever camp out, Redrow East Midlands’ initiative can help.

The initiative, which started in 2020, aims to help local organisations with specific donations and give them the tools they need to continue to thrive.

Ryan O’Sullivan, sales director for Redrow East Midlands, said: “We always try to do our bit to help create thriving communities at our developments and in the wider communities. With the success of the community fund last year, we knew we had to re-launch it this year to help even more people across the region.

“This year, we are doing things slightly differently – we would like groups to tell us exactly what they need, such as new tents for a local scout group for an upcoming trip. This way we will be able to give groups and charities the items they really need to continue their great work.

“We’d like to invite volunteers at local charities or community groups to share their story with us, and tell us what they need so they can continue to do the thing they do best – supporting their community.

“We’re looking forward to hearing how we can help people in East Midlands and the surrounding areas.”

The fund is now open and will close on 27th May 2022
