“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.”
