Lancashire Housebuilder Gives Hospice a Funding Boost

REDROW Lancashire has donated almost £13,000 to a Preston hospice.


St Catherine’s Hospice was chosen as the Chorley-based housebuilder’s ‘charity of the year’ for 2022. Employees, suppliers and contractors came together to raise £12,855 throughout the year and several Redrow colleagues also volunteered their time to help with the hospice’s own events.


Redrow’s fundraising initiatives included selling on surplus bricks from sites, a spring event with Redrow staff and contractors, and a charity golf day and raffle, which alone raised more than £5,000.


As part of Redrow’s nationwide 1,000 days volunteering challenge, for which all staff were granted two days paid leave to volunteer, Redrow’s Lancashire colleagues also gave their time to prepare the hospice grounds for its Yellow Ribbon Day.


Emma Jacovelli, head of community engagement at St Catherine’s Hospice, said: “We’re so grateful for this generous donation from Redrow, which will really help in our efforts to reach more local people in our area who are affected by life-shortening illnesses.


“Not only do we provide palliative and end-of-life care at the hospice; we also care for people in their own homes across Lancashire, helping patients to experience quality of life to the end of life. Our team supports families with emotional and bereavement support, and we offer a range of support for all members of our community such as carers and people who are lonely and isolated, or bereaved.


“We can only continue this important work thanks to the ongoing support of our communities and the wonderful relationships we have with businesses like Redrow.


“Redrow staff have donated vital funds as well as volunteering time to our cause over many years, and we are delighted that they continue to be there for our charity and those we care for. From everyone at St Catherine’s Hospice, I’d like to say a huge ‘thank you’ for everything they have done and continue to do for their local hospice.”



“We’ve partnered with St Catherine’s Hospice over many years to raise funds and support them to provide the wonderful and vital care they provide for patients,” said Claire Jarvis, managing director for Redrow Lancashire.


“It’s a privilege to hand over the cheque and I’d like to thank all of our staff, contractors and suppliers who worked hard and gave generously to raise such a brilliant total.”
