The company which recently built new homes in Congleton have donated £50,000 to a good cause for Ukraine.

As the crisis in Ukraine continues, the Barratt Foundation has donated £50,000 to support The Sun's Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal with the Red Cross.

The donation from Barratt Developments – parent company of Barratt and David Wilson Homes - will go straight to the Red Cross.

The Red Cross are a partner of the charity Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), which is working inside Ukraine and at its borders to ease the suffering of those caught in the conflict.

Last year, the property business sold the final of almost 200 homes at Somerford Reach, a development on Black Firs Lane in the Congleton parish of Somerford.

David Thomas, Chief Executive of Barratt Developments and Trustee of the Barratt Foundation, said: "We've all been affected by the distressing news from Ukraine.

"We welcome the Sun's appeal and are happy to donate to support the vital work the Red Cross is doing to ease suffering and helping families."

Mike Adamson, Chief Executive of British Red Cross, said: "This donation will help us reach people with food, water, medicine, medical equipment and other essentials. We thank you for your kind support."

Barratt Developments increased its charitable giving by establishing a dedicated Barratt Foundation, with a substantial increase in charitable giving to £4.5m last year.

The Barratt Foundation committed to building strong community relationships and ensuring it creates a positive legacy that helps local communities to thrive.

As part of their charitable giving strategy, The Barratt Foundation supports a range of local and national good causes, and encourages employees to get involved with both fundraising and volunteering.
