Local home builder supports 12 charities across West Yorkshire with £12,000 in donations

Ian Ruthven, Managing Director of Barratt Developments Yorkshire West

Local home builder, Barratt Developments Yorkshire West has continued to support the communities in which it builds by donating £12,000 to 12 charities across West Yorkshire as part of its Community Fund initiative.

Despite the ongoing challenges caused by the pandemic, Barratt Developments Yorkshire West, which includes the Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes brands, supported 12 charities thanks to its Community Fund initiative which sees the home builder donate £1,000 to a different local charity or organisation each month.

Local causes that were supported include: Cullingworth Village Primary School, Wilsden Squash Club, Wakefield Street Kitchen, CLIC Sargent, Birstall Preschool, Silkstone Primary School, Adel Crag Community Association, Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, Longwood Grange Care Homes, WF3 Kindness in Wakefield, St Lukes CoE Primary School in Bradford and Staincross Juniors Football Club. The donation has helped each organisation continue its important work to support communities across the region, particularly when the Covid-19 pandemic has severely impacted the charitable sector.

Ian Ruthven, Managing Director of Barratt Developments Yorkshire West, said: “We are always looking for ways to continue to support the communities in which we build, so we are thrilled that despite the challenges the pandemic has caused, we were able to support these incredibly important charities and organisations through our Community Fund.


“All of these organisations make a significant impact and difference in communities throughout West Yorkshire, so we are really looking forward to seeing how the donations will help each of them continue to do their important work.

We look forward to working with more charities and organisations across the region who will benefit from our Community Fund throughout the remainder of the year.”
