A housebuilder has committed to supporting six North West charities and community groups which applied for funding.
Story Homes has selected Kirkham and Rural Fylde FC, Burneside Cricket Club in Kendal, Gregson community charity in Lancaster, Broughton Parish Council and Broughton CE Primary School to receive a financial contribution from its Future Story scheme.
Projects that Story Homes will support this quarter include the provision of a potentially life-saving defibrillator unit, iPads for school children in Broughton, cricket kits and equipment in Kendal and football kits in Kirkham.
Secretary of Kirkham Junior FC Peter Jones, said: “When Story Homes started their new development at Brookwood Park in Kirkham, I approached them to sponsor one of our teams. They stepped up immediately and were keen to support the local community and understood the work that Kirkham Junior FC does with the youngsters in Kirkham and the surrounding area.
“It’s great that the relationship between the club and Story Homes has gone from strength to strength.
Head of Sales Richard Kitson, said: “From sponsoring grassroots sporting organisations, through to the provision of potential life-saving equipment, we endeavour to support local charities and organisations in ways that add long term value. It is great to be able to help another six organisations this quarter, all of which are doing fantastic work for the community in a variety of fields.
“The homes we build are part of wider communities, so helping charities and groups that neighbour our developments is very important to us. We look forward to seeing how these projects progress, and to supporting even more charities and community groups around the region throughout the next financial year.”
Story Homes is now inviting charities and community groups to apply for support in the first quarter of the 2018/19 financial year. Applications for sponsorship, donations or raffle prizes should be made by completing the form at http://www.storyhomes.co.uk/sustainable-story.
