The Barratt Foundation are thrilled to share the incredible success of the Big Barratt Hike, a two-day adventure that brought together over 130 Barratt employees for a memorable journey through the stunning Peak District, raising money for two of the Foundation’s charity partners The Outward Bound Trust and Whizz-Kidz.
The donation comprises £50,000 that was raised by teams of Barratt employees and their family, friends and suppliers, which was matched twice by Barratt Developments to reach the amazing £150,000 total. This is the most money ever raised by employees in the Hike and will go a long way in making a real difference in the lives of young people supported by these two charities, who will each receive £75,000 in funding.
The hike itself was one to remember. The sun was shining and the teams worked tirelessly, helping one another along the trail, offering support, and cheering each other on. Special hike t-shirts and medals are a reminder of the fantastic effort everyone made to cross the finish line.
Following the event, teams had the privilege of hearing inspiring speeches from representatives of both The Outward Bound Trust and Whizz-Kidz, highlighting the profound impact these funds will have on the young people they support.
