Wain Group Selects Charities of the Year

Wain Group has announced the charities it will support for the coming year, with each good cause chosen by our colleagues.

Our Group function has selected British Heart Foundation as our charity of the year. The BHF funds around £100 million of research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases and the things that cause them.

Wain Homes South West’s chosen charity is Refuge4Pets, which provides a specialist animal fostering service across Devon and Cornwall to victim-survivors of domestic abuse, so that they can leave with their much-loved animals.

In the Severn Valley, the team has voted for Bristol-based Marmalade Trust, the only charity dedicated to raising awareness of loneliness and empowering people to make connections.

The North West team will be fundraising for Willowbrook Hospice, based in Knowsley, Merseyside. Willowbrook offers specialist palliative care and aims to improve the quality of life for people who have a life limiting or terminal illness; helping them to live their life well. The hospice is particularly close to the hearts of some of our North West colleagues and a team of Wain Homes volunteers recently visited Willowbrook as part of our Helping Hands initiative.

Wain Estates will be supporting a number of different causes throughout the year and all the teams are now planning activities to help raise much-needed funds for their chosen charities.

Will Ainscough, Executive Chairman, said: “Wain Group is proud to support the communities in which we build and our teams across all our regions consistently demonstrate a caring and considerate approach to supporting colleagues and customers.

“I have no doubt every region will approach fundraising for their chosen charities with the same passion and dedication and I know every penny they help to raise will make a real and positive difference.”
