Barratt Developments raises over £38,000 for charity across Scotland.
Barratt’s three Scotland divisions celebrated a record-breaking Christmas after their charitable efforts topped more than £38,000 in donations.
The recipients of the donations are nominated and voted for by employees of Barratt Homes with the focus of the fundraising continuing to be on organisations that improve the quality of life for those living in the area and important issues which worsened due to the pandemic.
In April 2020, Barratt donated over 2,300 items of PPE equipment to hospitals around Scotland to help frontline NHS workers and staff in the fight against COVID-19, along with 44 defibrillators from its divisional head offices and constructions sites to St Andrew’s First Aid, who assist the NHS and ambulance service on the frontline should they be called upon.
Reflecting on the achievement, Douglas McLeod, Barratt Developments’ Regional Managing Director for Scotland, said:
“As the country’s leading housebuilder, we are committed to creating a positive legacy and making a genuine contribution towards the communities in which we build our homes.
We are extremely proud of this year’s achievement, as it’s become even more apparent how incredibly important it is to support those around us during these unexpected and difficult times.
We looking forward to working with many more organisations and raising even more funds as we go into 2021 and beyond. We would like to thank everyone who suggested the charities, supported our fundraising activity and wish everyone a happy and healthy Christmas and prosperous New Year.”
