Leading land and property regeneration company Harworth Group plc has made Christmas donations of £15,000, supporting a range of good causes across the North of England and the Midlands.
Each of the company’s six main teams were each allocated £2,500 and have subsequently nominated a range of individual charities. Its Midlands team have donated £2,500 to High Riders, a Bewdley-based charity that provides horse riding activities for disabled children.
Over in the North West, the team have donated £2,500 to the Greater Manchester Mayor’s Charity. Founded by Andy Burnham and run by volunteers, the Charity helps people in need of special care or support due to their circumstances, age, disability or risk of abuse and neglect.
Harworth’s Yorkshire & Central team have elected to make two separate donations. It has provided £1,250 to Sheffield Children’s Hospital, one of only three dedicated children’s hospital trusts in the UK which provides integrated healthcare for children and young people, including community and mental health care as well as acute and specialist services. It has also provided the same amount to PACES, a Sheffield-based specialist centre, charity and school for children and adults with Cerebral Palsy and motor disorders.
Its Income Generation team have provided a £2,500 donation to GAIN, the only organisation dedicated to helping people affected by Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), CIDP and the associated inflammatory neuropathies throughout the UK and Ireland.
The Central Services team have made a £1,250 donation to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice in Rotherham. It has also donated the same amount to Roundabout, South Yorkshire’s local youth housing charity providing shelter, support and life skills to young people aged 16-24 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Roundabout have also received a combined £2,500 donation from its Finance, Communications, Business Support and Environment & Estates teams.
“The Voluntary & Community Sector has had an extremely challenging 2020 owing to the pandemic and it is only right that businesses like ours step up our contributions this Christmas to support them. I’m delighted by the range of charities that our staff have nominated and can’t wait to see our contributions used to improve the lives of people across the regions.”Lynda Shillaw, Chief Executive.
