Kind-hearted staff at Barratt Homes Northampton have raised more than £30,000 for Teenage Cancer Trust following a charity dinner.
The well deserving charity was chosen after one of the division’s Bricklaying Apprentices was treated for Leukaemia on the Teenage Cancer Trust ward in Leicester.
Staff and subcontractors for the division attended the event at the Northampton Marriott Hotel and managed to raise an impressive £23,518 on the night.
This amount was then boosted by £8,000 from parent company Barratt Developments PLC, making the total money raised up to £31,518.
The money raised will go towards providing expert treatment and support to young people who are diagnosed with cancer.
Andrew Swindell, Managing Director at Barratt Homes Northampton, said: “We are delighted to announce that as a division, we have been able to raise more than £20,000 for this well deserving charity that is close to our heart.
“It is also fantastic to see the support of our parent company Barratt Developments, who has raised our total to more than £31,000.
“The charity chosen is more than a worthy cause that provides life-changing care and support so young people don’t have to face cancer alone.
“This is something that has been close to all of our hearts here at the division and we are pleased to have been able to raise these funds.
“We would also like to thank the local band Donnybrook Fair, who provided music for the evening and put their services up for auction.”
Teenage Cancer Trust exists to improve the quality of life and chances of survival for young people with cancer. As they don’t receive any government funding, they rely solely on donations like this to support their work.
