House builder’s staff raise £25,000 for homeless charity


A WARRINGTON-based charity which supports the homeless has received a £25,000 boost thanks to employees of a major housebuilder.
Room at the Inn provides a 10-bed night shelter for homeless people and other daytime services for marginalised people.
Staff at the housebuilders raised funds through parachute jumps, sponsored walks, runs, swims and bike rides.
They also took part in a “Sleep Out” in Warrington town centre, swapping the luxury of a warm bed for a sleeping bag to raise money for those who do it every night.
In total, they raised a staggering £25,218.
Robert Holbrook, managing director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes North West, said: “We are delighted to announce that our team has raised £25,218 for the charity.
“We pride ourselves on our quality work and dedication and it’s nice to be able to maintain this through our philanthropic efforts.
“It was an absolute pleasure raising money for Room at the Inn as they are a fantastic charity with volunteers who are extremely compassionate in all that they do.
“They are incredibly committed to the great work they perform and it’s inspiring for us all to witness.”
Susan Blyth, manager of Room at the Inn, said a big thank you to those who took part in the fund raising.
“They were not only amazing in the amount they raised for us but in reaching out as individuals, showing interest in what we do and supporting us throughout the year.
“The money will go to upgrading our sleeping area, a new disabled toilet and even a part time worker during the day to help our current staff, who are rushed off their feet.
“As everyone can see, the money will make a huge difference and we are endlessly grateful.”
