Local housebuilder donates £1,500 to Beverley Cherry Tree Community Centre

Local housebuilder, Barratt & David Wilson Homes Yorkshire East, has donated £1,500 to Beverley Cherry Tree Community to help provide food and meal recipes to 180 members. 

Beverley Cherry Tree Community Centre, was launched in 1993 specifically to aid disadvantaged children in the local area. Over time, the organisation has bec an integral part of the Humberside community allowing them to broaden their help and services to many others in the community.

The Community Centre serves as a hub for local residents, seniors and those requiring assistance. They foster an inclusive community by offering free advice, foodbank services and community projects.

Beverley Cherry Tree Community Association in East Yorkshire also aims to meet local residents’ needs by offering high-quality legal assistance in welfare benefits, debt, consumer and employment matters. They partner with professional solicitors for legal queries, ensuring timely services through a rigorous quality control programme.

The donation was given in accordance with Barratt Developments Community Fund, a programme dedicated to aiding communities where the housebuilder operates allowing internal staff to choose a different local charity each month. 

Beverley Cherry Tree Community Centre expresses their gratitude for this generous donation. Jo Ramsey, Beverley Cherry Tree Manager says: “Although the community centre has lots of services with the current cost of living crisis we try to prioritise our foodbank services for local people.

“The support from Barratt Homes was an amazing gesture to allow us to help 180 people in the area by distributing food bags containing meat and fresh vegetables as well as a meal recipe attached to the bags, allowing people to cook fresh meals with the ingredients.”

Daniel Smith, Managing Director of Barratt & David Wilson Homes Yorkshire East, “We are proud to support Beverley Cherry Tree Community Centre with this donation. It reflects our commitment to local communities and aligns with Barratt Developments’ dedication to make a positive impact in the areas where we build.
