Amherst Homes are proud of our contribution to the community. We have been involved with local causes and projects whenever possible for a number of years, and are always on the lookout for other ways to help.
Supporting Local Communities
We are the official sponsors of Saffron Walden Football Club and are one of Saffron Walden Carnival’s 8 Day Weekend Partners again for 2020. We have also supported Saffron Walden Golf Club scratch and junior teams, and in 2019 were sponsors of their Centenary Charity Pro-Am Tournament, which donated funds to the REAL for Ethan charity. We were proud to sponsor Saffron Screen’s First Rainbow Film Festival which took place in September 2019.
Passionate & Supportive
In January this year our team enjoyed a tour round our new development Redbank in Newport with a group of interested Sixth Form Students from local school, Joyce Frankland Academy. The students met and chatted about careers in property development and construction with our Chief Operating Officer, Scott McArthur, Sales Director Keri Wells and members of our on-site team and sub-contractors. We hope the opportunity gave them an insight into the development/construction industry and food for thought for their future careers!
For Christmas 2019 we decided to support our local Uttlesford Foodbank and were overwhelmed by the response not just from our staff but from our sub-contractors and suppliers who supported our appeal with lots of fantastic food donations. The charity do an amazing job feeding those in need locally and we were so delighted to help make a difference. We also met up with another great charity in 2019, Teens Unite and instead of sending out Christmas cards we donated to their “Christmas Bauble” campaign. We hope to collaborate with them further in 2020.
For 2020, we are planning a “Make the Difference Day” – If you are a local charity in the Uttlesford area that could do with a little help for the day or have a small project that we can assist with, please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
Other local charitable involvements of ours have included sponsoring Accuro’s Summer Jazz Picnic at Bridge End Gardens, where funds provided services to vulnerable children and adults, the Support for Sight’s 25th anniversary gala dinner and our continued support for Fairy Croft House, an amazing local community arts and media centre.
Other worthy causes in the uk and further afield which we’re equally passionate and supportive of are: The Children’s Society, Children with Cancer UK, Blue Smile, Keech Hospice and Chidobe Village Primary School in Zimbabwe.
