Award-winning Housebuilder, Linden Homes Shows its Charitable Side

To mark this year’s International Day of Charity, Linden Homes is celebrating the hundreds of charity events and challenges hosted up and down the country from opening food banks and hosting Macmillan Coffee mornings to volunteering at YMCA and holding a charity boxing night, raising over £100,000 since January 2018. In addition, this month will see the top-10 housebuilder, along with Galliford Try Partnerships participate in the mammoth Housebuilders Mountain Marathon Challenge. The team will cover a gruelling 26 miles across the rugged terrain of Snowdonia in North Wales, with the aim of raising £25,000. The money raised by the housebuilders will go to the Youth Adventure Trust. The Trust helps vulnerable children, aged 11 to 14 years old whilst giving them the chance to take part in a number of residential adventure camps. The programme enables the participants to experience success and learn to go beyond their own expectations whilst growing in confidence. Linden Homes’ charitable side does not stop with this challenge with Linden Homes West Yorkshire recently hosting a charity dinner for Macmillan Cancer Support. The evening included a three-course dinner, charity auction, raffle and live music from award-winning band ‘Undercovered’. The dinner raised an impressive £12,500, taking Linden Homes West Yorkshire’s total fundraising to date to £14,420, with the target of raising £20,000 by the end of the year. At the other end of the country, Linden Homes South West hosted a charity golf day in May, which raised a staggering £24,000 for Torbay Hospital’s Special Care Baby Unit and the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital’s Neonatal Unit. Linden Homes South West has since hosted another charity golf day, raising £30,000. The funds were split with half being donated to FORCE Cancer with remaining funds used to install defibrillators in the communities that Linden Homes have built in the region.  Tom Nicholson, Divisional Chairman of Linden Homes commented: “As well as taking part in wider charitable events such as the Housebuilder Mountain Marathon Challenge, it’s also fantastic to see that our business units across the country are showing such generosity to support so many worthwhile causes to give something back to the areas that we build our homes in. “In addition to direct fundraising, Linden Homes’ teams around the country have supported their communities by sponsoring sports teams, local events and schools. Groups who can often get overlooked have found the help they’ve needed and it’s rewarding to see the range of organisations we’ve assisted.” International Day of Charity is observed annually on 5 September and is an awareness day proposed by the United Nations (UN inviting organisations and individuals to commemorate the day by encouraging charitable acts in their communities.   To read the full story and to donate in support of Linden Homes’ Mountain Marathon Challenge, please visit: uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/HBMM18LindenHomes
