St Michael's Hurst and Stortford South estates developer Countryside Properties donates £2,000 each to seven Hertfordshire charities
Countryside Properties, the developer behind Bishop's Stortford's St Michael's Hurst and Stortford South estates, has donated a total of £14,000 to Hertfordshire charities.
The money comes from the company's communities fund, which was set up in response to the coronavirus pandemic to support local charities and community groups, food banks and others providing essential services in locations where the housebuilder operates across the country. Since launching the fund in June, it has contributed more than £500,000.
In Hertfordshire, the £14,000 donation has been split equally among seven charities.
Money to two food banks, in Broxbourne and Royston, will help the ongoing delivery of vital foodstuffs to those in need, while donations to the Jubilee House Care Trust in Welwyn Garden City and Age UK Herts will go towards providing care and support to vulnerable adults and older people.
Donations have also been made to Isabel Hospice, mental health charity Mind and Heathlands Animal Sanctuary in Royston.
Catherine Brooking, managing director of Housebuilding Central, Countryside, said: "These are uncertain, challenging times for many and our communities fund has enabled us to support a range of charities and grass-roots community groups across Hertfordshire which are providing vital services – be it food, care or simply a friendly voice on the end of the phone – to make life a little easier for those most in need."
