Two housing developers have teamed up to make a festive donation to a family-focused charity.
Barratt Homes North Midlands and David Wilson Homes East Midlands have donated a collection of construction toys to Home-Start Newark, close to their Fernwood Village development in Fernwood.
Some of the donated toys will be used for Home-Start Newark's family group activities, to create a stimulating environment for children, and a portion of the toys will be distributed directly to families in need, ensuring that their children receive a Christmas present.
Sara Grant, manager at Home-Start Newark, said: “We are delighted to receive this generous donation from Barratt Homes North Midlands and David Wilson Homes East Midlands.
“The toys will make a wonderful addition to our family group and will be of great benefit to any families who receive them directly.
“This kind of play stimulates children’s imaginations, fine motor skills and creativity. It’s fantastic to link with local businesses in this way, in support of our local community.”
Home-Start Newark helps parents through the complexities of raising children, offering support to enhance their coping skills, boost confidence, and build better lives for their families.
The support can lead to improved health and well-being, and stronger family relationships.
Mark Cotes, managing director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “We are delighted to be supporting such an excellent charity in its mission to help families and enhance the well-being of children. We hope that our donation of construction toys can bring joy and inspiration to the families they reach.”
John Reddington, managing director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, added: “We are very grateful for the work of Home-Start Newark and its impact in the community in which we are building. We believe in the power of play and learning, and we hope that the toys bring warmth and happiness to the children and families they reach.”
