A new foundation supporting community projects has been launched by Edenstone Homes with the first grant of £5,000 awarded to The Wallich.
The partnership between the just-launched Edenstone Foundation and The Wallich comes ahead of World Homeless Day (October 10).
The foundation will also host a gala dinner in the same week at Cardiff Exchange Hotel in aid of our homelessness services.
Martin Taylor, managing director of Magor-based Edenstone Homes, explained:
“Edenstone is a rapidly growing business and as a responsible corporate citizen we want to give something back to communities.
“As a homebuilder, we are acutely aware of the housing shortage across the UK and are playing our part in tackling the issue by building more homes. We also appreciate the wider issues around housing and homelessness, which is why we’ve chosen to partner with The Wallich.
“We hope the grant of £5,000 will be a welcome boost to helping provide emergency accommodation for the homeless particularly as the cold weather sets in.”
Mike Walmsley, corporate fundraising manager for The Wallich, said:
“We are so grateful to the Edenstone Foundation for making us the beneficiaries of their first ever grant.
“Successful corporate partnerships aren’t all about the money – they work best when both parties share the values and have the vision to work together creatively to benefit those most in need. We look forward to working closely with Martin and his team in future.”
The generous donation from the Edenstone Foundation will help fund the continuation of our services across Wales; helping more than 8,000 homeless and vulnerably housed people every year.
