Barratt Homes Donates £1,400 to Ayrshire Hospice

Kilmarnock housebuilder, Barratt Homes has made a donation of £1,400 to Ayrhsire Hospice to support the invaluable work of the organisation in the local community.

The firm pledged £100 to the local hospice for every reservation made at Westlin Walk in Kilmarnock between its launch in autumn and the end of 2014.

The initiative is part of the housebuilder’s Pride of Place campaign – a commitment to supporting and developing local communities – and will support the hospice as it celebrates its 25th year of delivering quality care and services throughout Ayrshire and Arran.

Steve Mariner, sales and marketing director for Barratt Homes West Scotland, said:

“Our initiative to support Ayrshire Hospice has proved really popular at Westlin Walk and it’s great to be able to support the community in this way. Each home at Westlin Walk has been designed to provide the comfort, lifestyle and quality expected by today’s buyer and, already in 2015, significant levels of interest have been noted.”

Fiona Leitch, Head of Fundraising at Ayrshire Hospice, said:

“It is fantastic news that Barratt Homes has helped to round off our 25th anniversary celebrations with such a generous donation. We deliver outstanding quality care and services to people with life limiting illness and their families across Ayrshire and Arran. The care we provide is free of charge but does require us to raise over £12,000 a day from voluntary donations. This very welcome contribution from Barratt Homes will help us to achieve our ambitious fundraising targets.”
