Wain Homes Selects Charities of the Year

Every year, each region of Wain Homes selects a charity partner they will support with fundraising activities.

Everybody in the Wain Homes team is invited to propose and vote for the charities to support over the next 12 months and we are delighted to announce the chosen charities for this year.

In the South West, our chosen charity is Refuge4Pets, which provides a specialist animal fostering service across Devon and Cornwall to victim-survivors of domestic abuse, so that they can leave with their much-loved animals.

In the Severn Valley, the team has voted for Bristol-based Marmalade Trust, the only charity dedicated to raising awareness of loneliness and empowering people to make connections.

Coppafeel! is the chosen charity for our West Midlands region. Coppafeel! is the first breast cancer charity in the UK to solely create awareness amongst young people, with the aim of instilling the knowledge and tools they need to get to know their bodies and empower people to start healthy habits for life.

In the North West, we will be fundraising for Willowbrook Hospice, based in Knowsley, Merseyside. Willowbrook offers specialist palliative care and aims to improve the quality of life for people who have a life limiting or terminal illness; helping them to live their life well. The hospice is particularly close to the hearts of some of our North West colleagues and a team of Wain Homes volunteers recently visited Willowbrook as part of our Helping Hands initiative.

Our Warrington-based Hub team supports all of our regions and it has selected British Heart Foundation as its charity of the year. The BHF funds around £100 million of research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases and the things that cause them.

All our teams are now planning activities to help raise much-needed funds for our chosen charities.

Peter Barlow, CEO of Wain Homes, said: “Wain Homes is proud to become a part of the communities in which we build and our teams across all our regions consistently demonstrate a caring and considerate approach to supporting colleagues and customers.

“I have no doubt every region will approach fundraising for their chosen charities with the same passion and dedication and I know every penny they help to raise will make a real and positive difference.”
