Barratt Developments gives £25k donation that's right on track

With its head office being based in Bardon, the national housebuilder reached out to the Apollo Partnership Trust (APT) to see how they could be involved in the development of the state of the art facility.

Chief Financial Officer for Barratt Developments, Jessica White, recently visited Newbridge High School on Forest Road to meet staff and pupils and present the cheque. The money will now go towards the 400m track which will be used by local schools and the local community.

APT comprises three academies in North West Leicestershire and is committed to the development and improvement of Newbridge High School, Castle Rock High School and Broom Leys Primary.

As well as the development of the track, the trust has been fundraising for the cost to create further parking spaces to cater for the increase in visitors, to include disabled access to the track and for providing new changing facilities.

Julia Patrick, the Chief Executive of APT commented:

“The opportunities that this facility will bring to the local schools, and the community as a whole, are unlimited. We thank Barratt Developments for their very kind and generous donation which has helped us get closer to reaching our fundraising target.”

Jessica White said:

“We are delighted to be able to support this project in our local community. This project will provide an athletics track and associated facilities, which will benefit not only local schools but also the community as a whole for years to come.”

Local housebuilders David Wilson Homes East Midlands and Barratt Homes North Midlands, which are part of Barratt Developments, are currently building new homes across Leicestershire at various developments that cater for a wide variety of property seekers.
