Harworth Estates has donated £2,000 to the Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefract following the floods that caused damage to the charity’s facilities on the 8th of August.
Harworth Estates is currently regenerating the former Prince of Wales colliery site into a mixed-use development with consent for over 900 new homes, employment opportunities and a range of community facilities for local people and the donation is in recognition of the Hospice’s key role in the local community.
Chris Davidson, Development Manager at Harworth Estates for the Prince of Wales redevelopment site, said: “The Prince of Wales hospice is a key part of the local community in Pontefract and we were deeply saddened when we heard about the flooding last weekend. Given the proximity of the Hospice to our development at the former Colliery site, we thought it was only right that we made a donation to the recovery effort to get the Hospice back on its feet.”
Tracey Mearns, Partnership Development Co-ordinator for the Hospice, said: “We really appreciate Harworth Estates for making this donation. Repairs to damaged areas are underway and thankfully we have been able to continue to care for patients during this difficult time.
It is only with the support of our local community and donations like these that we can continue making a difference!”
