Tag­gart Homes’ Big Build

Belfast Telegraph - Propertynews - - Home Finder -

Staff at con­struc­tion com­pany Tag­gart Homes are grab­bing their hard hats to sup­port Europe’s largest ever con­struc­tion and vol­un­teer event, Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity’s Big Build.

This au­tumn a group from­tag­gart Homes will travel to Ro­ma­nia to join Big Build with vol­un­teers from Ro­ma­nia and around the world.

They will help build 40 homes in one week be­side fam­i­lies in need, cel­e­brat­ing 40 years of Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity. The com­pany is also rais­ing £10,000 to sup­port the char­ity’s life-chang­ing work; em­pow­er­ing vul­ner­a­ble fam­i­lies to im­prove the place they call home in more than 70 coun­tries.

It is hoped that Big Build will be the be­gin­ning of a part­ner­ship be­tween Habi­tat and Tag­gart Homes, who are cur­rently build­ing 82 new homes at Plan­ta­tion View in Li­mavady, 260 new homes at Cul­more Rd and 280 at Cres­cent Link in Derry City.

“At Tag­gart Homes we know fam­i­lies build their fu­ture on the foun­da­tion of a good home. That’s why we’re sup­port­ing Habi­tat’s Big Build; giv­ing 40 hard-work­ing fam­i­lies the op­por­tu­nity to build a brighter fu­ture. We hope this is the be­gin­ning of a long part­ner­ship with Habi­tat, which will reach hun­dreds of fam­i­lies in need,” said Ryan Byrne, Mar­ket­ing Di­rec­tor of Tag­gart Homes.

Habi­tat’s sev­enth an­nual Big Build will take place in Ba­cau, Ro­ma­nia be­tween Oc­to­ber 1-8. In Ro­ma­nia, more than five mil­lion peo­ple live in poor hous­ing which is over­crowded and in need of re­pair. Habi­tat part­ner with fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties to build sim­ple homes and of­fer a hand-up out of poverty.

Jenny Wil­liams, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive of Habi­tat NI, said: “We are ex­cited to part­ner with Tag­gart Homes; their sup­port will make a big dif­fer­ence to fam­i­lies in ur­gent need of a safe place to call home.

“It’s a shock­ing statis­tic that one in four peo­ple in our world live in poor con­di­tions. Safe shel­ter saves lives and thanks to this gen­er­ous sup­port more fam­i­lies will be health­ier, chil­dren will do bet­ter in school and par­ents will have the chance to earn a sta­ble in­come. Home is the start of it, for all of us.” To learn more or sign up to Habi­tat’s Big Build visit habi­tatni. co.uk or cal1 028 92 635 635.
