Barratt Homes celebrates a hospice star

Posted on: March 10th, 2020

To mark maintaining its title of the UK's most recommended housebuilder for a decade Barratt Developments has identified five local stars from across the region to acknowledge the invaluable work they do within their communities.

Each of the five local stars are involved in charity or organisation that was nominated for Barratt Development’s Community Fund scheme in 2019.

Representatives from Wellspring Therapy and Training, HER Breast Friends, Wigginton Grasshoppers FC, Bereaved Children Support, and Dove House Hospice each put forward a deserving nominee, to have a star named after them and receive well-deserved recognition for their hard work.

Elaine Longley, a Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Community Support Nurse here at Dove House was nominated for the award for her work providing specialist support to patients living with MND from diagnosis through to end-of-life care, providing holistic support for the needs of patients and their families in the community.

Daniel Smith, Managing Director of Barratt Developments Yorkshire East commented: “We are thrilled to be recognising five local stars who have dedicated their time and effort to helping the wonderful causes that have benefited from our Community Fund. They are each an inspiration and should be incredibly proud of the work they do. There are a number of charities and organisations that make a huge difference to the people of East Yorkshire and it’s important to us that we give back to those communities “
