Charity’s praise for cash support
HOUSEBUILDER Kebbell Homes has been praised for donating more than £47,000 to Padstones, the Buckinghamshire charity looking after vulnerable 16-25 year-olds.
Kebbell Homes operates a Give As You Earn (GAYE) donation scheme, in which they donate to their chosen charity (Padstones) over the past 12 years.
Recently combining with local charity Connection Support, Pad- stones provides support for people aged 16-25, who are at risk across the Thames Valley area.
The charity’s operations help these young adults make a smooth transition from dependence to independence, continuing to operate under the Padstones name.
Since the housebuilder began donating to the charity in 2006, the money raised has contributed towards day trips for residents, holidays, Christmas gifts and celebratory meals.
David Bayes, a board member at Padstones, said: “We are so grateful for Kebbell Homes’ continued support over the years.
“We are able to support and look after vulnerable youngsters thanks to generous donations from benefactors such as Kebbell Homes, enabling us to accommodate 41 young persons in our projects over the past year.”
Andrea Fawell, sales and marketing manager at Kebbell Homes, said: “We are delighted to have been able to support Padstones for this long through our Give As You Earn scheme.
“It is great to see the impact donations have on the charity and how they can be used to continue to help the work Padstones are doing changing these individuals’ lives.”
