Beal Homes staff have raised funds to help disadvantaged children in Yorkshire through a sale of housewares from the housebuilder’s former show homes.
From lamps and light fittings to candles and cushions, the “Beal Emporium” was held at Beal’s head office in Hessle, East Yorkshire.
Thanks to the generosity of Beal’s team, £1,000 was raised for Yorkshire Children’s Charity’s “Schools Out” project.
Schools Out provides a series of events for children who are at a disadvantage in life due to disability, ill health or financial circumstances. The activities give children the opportunity to explore and enjoy the world around them.
Beal is proud to support Yorkshire Children’s Charity in its mission to transform childhoods and give children a fair chance in life.
Sue Waudby, Beal’s Sales and Marketing Director, said: “We share Yorkshire Children’s Charity vision of making dreams happen and believe every child should have the opportunity to succeed.
“When we realised we had an assortment of houseware from our former show homes that we no longer needed, we wanted to find a good home for them and raise money for an important cause at the same time.
“The Schools Out project transforms the lives of so many children across Yorkshire, providing them with opportunities and experiences they otherwise would not have, and we’re pleased to be able to support its great work.”
Yorkshire Children’s Charity launched in January 2022 with a vision to ensure every child or young person in Yorkshire has a fair chance to succeed and to make childhood poverty a thing of the past.The charity provides a range of support, advice and guidance to children and their families. It also works closely with a network of schools and colleges, ensuring help and resource is directed to those who need it most.
Charlotte Farrington, CEO of Yorkshire Children’s Charity, said: “As a new charity, it was clear from the start that Beal shared our vision and passion. As a family-owned business, they understood everything that we’re trying to achieve and we really felt connected with them.
“From the outset, Beal went above and beyond to support the work we do. On behalf of Yorkshire Children’s Charity, I would like to thank Beal Homes and its staff for their support.
“We really could not do the work we do without the help of companies like Beal.”
