Housebuilder Extends Hands of Gratitude

Employees are gearing up for another year of giving as we have extended our ‘Helping Hands’ charity initiative for another 12 months.

‘Helping Hands’ will see Wain Homes’ staff given paid time out of the business in order to volunteer their help for local charities, community groups and good causes.

Peter Barlow, Wain Homes CEO, said: “We launched ‘Helping Hands’ last year to mark the company’s 50th anniversary and it was great to see the positive difference our team made to so many groups and organisations in their local areas.

“Our role as a responsible builder means we care about the communities we build in and we’re proud that everyone who works for us does too. And they don’t just say it, they show it through getting involved, supporting all kinds of organisations.

During the past 12 months, Wain’s employees have volunteered around 150 days helping out in their communities from the North West to the South West and are looking to double that figure this year.

Peter added: “The feedback we got from every organisation which our team supported last year was how willing our people were to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in and it was heart-warming to hear how they all worked as a team and made a real difference.

“The Wain team is dedicated to helping make every area in which we build the best place to live it can be and this was evident in the enthusiasm with which they tackled every project.

“From painting school fences and creating nursery playgrounds, to giving some love and attention to hospice gardens and tidying up beaches, we got the jobs done and we are hoping to double our efforts again this year.”

Wain Homes is now inviting anyone who is in need of some ‘Helping Hands’ across the North West, West Midlands, Severn Valley and South West to get in touch.

So if you have a school that needs painting, land that needs tending or just need an extra pair of hands for your good cause, Wain has more than 300 pairs ready and waiting to help.
