Yorkshire housebuilder supports Saint Catherine’s Hospice with £1,000 donation

Local housebuilder, Barratt Developments Yorkshire East, has donated £1,000 as part of its Community Fund initiative to Saint Catherine’s, a palliative care provider, offering support at home and in the hospice for adults with a terminal illness, and to their families and friends.

The chosen charity, Saint Catherine’s, offers specialist palliative care to individuals living with a terminal illness. The organisation offers its support both at home and at its in-patient unit in Scarborough, which is supported by a multidisciplinary team including doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, bereavement counsellors and social workers.

With the help of the donation from Barratt Developments Yorkshire East’s Community Fund, an initiative which aims to support the communities in which the housebuilder operates with a different chosen charity each month, further support will be offered to the Saint Catherine’s team to make a difference to the patients cared for by delivering quality services to the patients, their families, and carers of the community.

Daniel Smith, Managing Director at Barratt Developments Yorkshire East commented: “Saint Catherine’s does a truly fantastic job in offering its support to people in the local community and it has been an honour to nominate the charity for our Community Fund donation, it’s very much deserved. We hope that our donation will help to raise awareness of the vital work that the charity does and help it to continue supporting individuals with terminal illnesses and their families going through such difficult times.”

Susan Stephenson, communications and marketing manager at Saint Catherine’s, said: “We are incredibly grateful to Barratt Developments Yorkshire East for this donation. We embrace people as individuals, providing holistic care, improving their personal experience and ensuring dignity and privacy. The funds will help us to continue to offer the best possible care to those in our community.”
