Redrow donates £13,000 to hospice

A £13,000 donation from staff at Redrow Homes has given a central Lancashire hospice which relies on voluntary fundraising a big boost.

The award-winning housebuilder has spent the last 12 months raising money across all of its divisions in a ‘charity challenge’ to mark the company’s 40th anniversary celebrations. The Lancashire division, based at Buckshaw Village, near Chorley, chose St Catherine’s Hospice as one of its charities and, thanks to a Sportsman’s Dinner, was able to hand over a whopping cheque for £12,906.69.

It costs £5m to run St Catherine's each year - of which a huge £3.7m must be raised through charitable efforts with the support of the local community.

"We are extremely grateful to them for picking us as one of their chosen charities during their milestone 40th year. Now, as we mark our own special 30th anniversary during 2015, we are delighted to receive these valuable funds and to hear of more exciting events the firm has planned for the future.

Redrow’s charity challenge harnessed the enthusiasm and support of its employees throughout 2014. But the support didn’t stop with fundraising activities, as St Catherine’s Hospice discovered.

Steve Greenhalgh, managing director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), added: “The Redrow team has been absolutely fantastic – they’ve really thrown themselves into raising money for St Catherine’s Hospice and other good causes and the amount they’ve raised is staggering.” The Lancashire division’s efforts for the year resulted in a massive £80,000 total being raised for good causes such as Alzheimer’s Society, Derian House children’s hospice, Stroke Association and Macmillan.
