Working together to benefit communities in Doncaster has led to a housing organisation and three companies it works with scooping a top award.
St Leger Homes of Doncaster, together with Bramall Construction, Henry Boot Construction and Wates Living Space, carried off a prestigious award from the Chartered Institute of Builders’ Celebrating Construction in South Yorkshire Awards.
The award, for corporate social responsibility, is for the work carried out across Doncaster’s communities.
St Leger Homes – the organisation that manages just under 21,000 homes for Doncaster Council – works with the three construction companies to deliver improvement work on Doncaster’s council homes. As well as carrying out this work, the partnership strives to leave a legacy within the community. In 2010/11 the partnership delivered 25 legacy projects.
The projects have included energy awareness events to show residents how to save energy and money, renovating school allotments, buying training kits for a junior football club, transforming part of a school field into a gardening area where pupils can learn about growing fruit and vegetables as well as installing bird boxes and waterbutts so the young people can learn about saving water and nature. Work has also been carried out with local social enterprise, Active Regen, who use sport and physical activity to keep young people fit, healthy and focussed.
All of the projects are sustainable and are long term investments into Doncaster’s communities.
Mick Werritt, St Leger Homes’ director of property services, said: ‘Winning this Corporate Social Responsibility award is a great achievement and a fantastic way of showing our staff and contractors’ staff, that the hard work they carry out in Doncaster’s communities is appreciated. I want to thank everyone involved for carrying out this excellent work.’
