Yorkshire Housebuilder pledges donation To Doncaster Hospital Charity
Doncaster based housebuilder, Albemarle Homes, has selected Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals as its first charity partner, supporting local healthcare professionals with over three years of fundraising.
Albemarle Homes, who is currently constructing homes in South Yorkshire, will be taking part in several fundraising activities throughout the next year to raise funds for the charity. Most importantly, those buying a new home from Albemarle Homes, on its Westmoor Grange development in Armthorpe, Doncaster and Vicarage Fields in Beckingham, near Gainsborough, will have the added perk of knowing that £100 of their sale price will be donated to the hospital charity.
With over 400 homes being built across both developments, Albemarle Homes will be raising over £40,000 to help patients and staff at the hospital trust over the coming years.
Darryl Barker, Managing Director of Albemarle Homes, said: “Doncaster and its people hold a special place in my heart, it’s the place where I was born and live and where Albemarle Homes’ head office is located. We therefore consciously make decisions everyday with local people in mind, whether that’s in the style of homes we build or the trades and suppliers we use. It was only natural that when looking at supporting a charity we chose DBTH because of the passion and commitment they have in supporting our local hard working NHS staff and the patients they care for. We are all aware of the hard work and dedication these people, and other key workers, do and, by pledging £100 for every home we sell at Westmoor Grange and Vicarage Fields, we hope to give a little back to those people who have given so much to us.
“Our Westmoor Grange development is situated in Armthorpe, not far from Doncaster Royal Infirmary, and the feedback from our homebuyers has already been hugely positive. They are delighted that by buying their dream home they’re also being able to support such a worthwhile charity and people who work within or have been treated by the Trust, many of whom are friends or family members. We would certainly like to encourage other local businesses to follow our lead and make DBTH their chosen charity, enabling them to increase their support to workers and patients across the borough.”
The hospital charity itself is fairly new, only having launched just over two years ago, and Albemarle Homes will be their first official fundraising partner.
Richard Parker, Chief Executive at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals, said: “We’re overjoyed to have Albemarle Homes as our first ever official fundraising partner. Their latest development is right on our doorstep and we know that their generous donations will make a world of difference to the patients in our care and the communities we serve. We’re often overwhelmed by the generous efforts of local businesses to help us go above and beyond and this is a particularly special partnership as it’s the first time we’ve been selected as a charity of the year.
‘We would also like to extend our thanks to those families moving to the Westmoor Grange and Vicarage Fields developments as each house sold there will raise £100 for the DBTH charity. Welcome to our community.”
In addition to raising funds for the hospital’s charity, Albemarle Homes is currently offering a keyworker discount to those employed in the health service, police force, fire service and many others. The discount of £500 for every £25,000 is applied to property list prices at albemarlehomes.co.uk.
