The Yorkshire division of Bellway Homes has underlined its commitment to the natural environment by donating £5,000 to the RSPB.
The money will be used for the national wildlife charity’s Giving Nature a Home campaign, which aims to encourage the nation to create one million homes for nature in their own gardens and outside spaces.
Paula Murdoch, Bellway’s Yorkshire sales manager, said: “As a home builder we have a responsibility to protect wildlife and the environment surrounding our sites, and offer a helping hand where and when we can.”
“We’ve worked closely with the RSPB over a number of years, most notably when they’ve relocated animals whose habitat has been affected by building work, and we are delighted to be able to provide this financial support for such an important project.”
Craig Hartley, visitor services manager at the RSPB’s Old Moor site, added: “Bellway has supported us well over the years and we are delighted they have chosen to support us in this very important campaign. It is through this kind of generous donation that we are able to continue delivering the very best for birds and wildlife across the UK.”
Bellway has built more than 100,000 homes since its formation in 1946 and is today one of the largest housebuilders in the UK. It is currently building on 10 sites across Yorkshire. For additional information visit www.bellway.co.uk or call 0800 731 0014.
