Bromsgrove District Housing Trust donates £3,000 to four local organisations

Harry Leach 27th Apr, 2021

BROMSGROVE District Housing Trust (BDHT) has donated £3,000 to four local organisations in a bid help them recover from the pandemic.

The cash was split between Primrose Hospice, Dodford Children’s Farm charity, Basement Project and West Mercia Women’s Aid.

BDHT chief executive Mark Robertson said: “The pandemic has had a very real and lasting impact on individuals across the UK and has put an incredible amount of pressure on businesses which often depend on the generosity of others through fundraising activities.

“We are keen to make a positive and lasting contribution to the Bromsgrove community and due to the lockdown restrictions, we unfortunately had to postpone our 1,000 hours community initiative for 2020.

“BDHT is looking forward to seeing each of the charities and organisations continue their great work in the community.”

Sue Coleman, chief executive of West Mercia Women’s Aid, thanked the housing provider for the donation.

She said: “As a result of the pandemic and the lockdown restrictions, people in abusive relationships have been exposed to increased risk of violence and trauma.

“Our team has been working incredibly hard to help each and every woman who has needed our help at this time.

“We would like to say an enormous thank you to BDHT for its generosity.”
