Nottinghamshire based developers Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes have donated £1,000 to MacIntyre’s Derbyshire team which provides support for people with learning disabilities.
The developers’ Community Fund scheme visited the team to hand over an enormous cheque. You can see from everyone’s faces just how thrilled they were to receive the cheque.
Michelle Wilkinson, Frontline Manager at MacIntyre, said:
“When we received the good news, I couldn’t wait to share with the wider teams in MacIntyre that we’d received a £1,000 donation from Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes.
“The Community Fund is a fantastic idea as it gets donations directly to the people who need it the most and helps turn great ideas into reality.
“We would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes for their very generous donation.”
The donation will be going towards restarting the charity’s Memory Café, a space for those with dementia to make friends and join in social activities, and a project to connect with local disabled people who fall outside the criteria for funded support.
Mark Cotes, Managing Director at Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes North Midlands, said:
“MacIntyre is an incredible charity and its volunteers do an incredibly selfless job in providing support for those with learning disabilities.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute towards providing for those in need through our Community Fund scheme.”
