Lincolnshire firm builds funds for charity
Now in its 20th year, the Chestnut Homes’ raffle had a total of 55 prizes donated by partner companies and contractors – the highest number to date.
Prizes included a four-ball golf day from the 59 Club, a £100 voucher for Lincolnshire eatery The George, Beats studio buds earphones, a 43-inch LG TV, a Fortnum and Mason hamper, plus a variety of wines, champagne and vouchers.
Olivia Stephenson, marketing manager, at Chestnut Homes said: “Each year, our annual raffle marks a key date in the Chestnut Homes calendar, allowing us to enjoy a special evening with our contractors, suppliers and staff, while raising money for very worthy causes.
"We are also partners of St Barnabas’ HeArt Trial, which places beautifully designed heart sculptures across Lincolnshire to bring awareness to the hospice and how it supports the families of Lincolnshire. We will have two dedicated painted hearts along the trail in Boston and Lincoln.”
St Barnabas Hospice, which is celebrating its 40th year in 2023, provides expert end-of-life inpatient and at home care, allowing its patients to have control and comfort for the final part of their lives.
RNLI is the largest charity saving lives at sea in the UK and Ireland, having saved more than 142,700 lives since its beginning in 1823.
The raffle rounded off a year of charitable efforts from the housebuilder, with other initiatives including food bank donations, Macmillan coffee mornings and the C2C2C Lincolnshire bike ride which raised funds for a range of local charities including the brain injury foundation Headway Lincolnshire and domestic abuse charity EDAN Lincs.
Olivia added: “We couldn’t achieve these goals without our incredible team, who give their time, money and energy for these great causes.
"Over the coming year, we look forward to building on last year’s charity efforts and to supporting as many charities and good causes from across Lincolnshire and beyond.”
Chestnut Homes has a range of developments across Lincolnshire including Bridgeways in Alford, Kings Manor in Coningsby, The Meadows in Dunholme, Chantrey Park in Market Rasen, The Quadrant & Heron Park in Wyberton and Millers Walk in Sibsey.
