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 in local charities and good causes.
Right now, we’re rolling up our sleeves together and volunteering a year full of good deeds through our Helping Hands initiative.
It works like this. Anyone who wants to get involved can put their hand up to give back a day of their time to their favourite charity. Or they can choose to help out at one of our many organised events, a charity, school or local cause throughout the year.
Need a helping hand?
We're looking for opportunities to roll up our sleeves and lend a helping hand. 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, we have 365 pairs ready to help.
Email us here with the details and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
Reaching out in different ways
We raised £8,000 for Grief Encounter at the annual Wain Homes Severn Valley Golf Day, helping to support bereaved children and young people.
We raised £1,000 for our chosen Christmas Charities. Headway, Devon and St Petrocks in Exeter.
Eight members of our South West team helped to build a new play area for an Ivybridge nursery school as part of our Helping Hands volunteering initiative.
Led by sales administrator Gemma Curley and including managing director Alex Hugo, the team spent a day levelling the ground, laying new turf, installing a new filter drain, creating a building area and replacing the sandpit roof.
We also donated timber and roofing materials to help transform the muddy and rundown play area.
Manor Primary School is just over one mile from our Saxon Gate development of new homes in Ivybridge.
Saxon Gate features more than 50 modern two, three and four-bedroom new homes situated on the edge of Dartmoor National Park.
Alex Hugo, managing director of Wain Homes South West said, “We had a fantastic day at Manor Primary School and our team of volunteers rolled up their sleeves to create something very special for the children. I am pleased to see our Helping Hands scheme is already benefitting some of the communities where we work.”
Karen Dixon, head teacher at Manor Primary School, said: “Thank you to Wain Homes for all their help, we simply couldn’t have done it without them.
“We are delighted with all the hard work they did and their enthusiasm for the project was brilliant.”
Helping Hands will see every member of the Wain Homes team volunteer for a day in their local community, helping out a range of charities, community groups, schools and nurseries.
