Developer donations from homes built near Honiton have given a much-needed boost to charity Hospicare.
South West housebuilder Baker Estates is giving £100 to the charity from each sale of its new homes built at Hayne Farm, Gittisham.
The charity was recently presented with £500 by the developer, from homes sold.
Ian Baker, managing director at Baker Estates, who presented the funds to Sarah Smith of Hospsicare, said: “We are proud to support this very important and well-regarded local hospice.
“As a community-focused housebuilder, we like to find ways of contributing to local charities who are reliant on donations and work so hard to raise funding.”
Andrew Randall, Hospiscare CEO, said the charity was ‘incredibly grateful’ for the developer donation.
He said the charity needed support ‘more than ever’ because it faced an income deficit of more than £1million this year, due to the impact of the coronavirus.
Mr Randall said: “On behalf of Hospiscare, I would like to say a huge thank you to Ian Baker and the team for this generous support. We are really looking forward to working with them.
“The donations will help many people in the local area who are living with a terminal illness and those close to them.”
Hospiscare supports more than 2,000 people living with a terminal illness, and their families, across Exeter, Mid and East Devon.
