Happy Days Charity, based in Hitchin, recently received a £1,500 donation from Barratt Homes. The donation was made as part of The Barratt Foundation’s Community Fund initiative, whose North Thames division is based in Watford, which sees the housebuilder donate £1,500 each month to a charity improving the lives of individuals in the areas close to its developments and offices.

Established in 1992 by three mothers, Happy Days Charity aid families through funding and organising holidays and specials days, including trips to zoos, the seaside and sporting events for children across the UK in ages from 3 to 17, who are living with physical, mental, and emotional difficulties. Every year, the charity successfully supports almost 25,000 children, providing them a chance to grow and develop against all barriers. Their support is further extended to children’s hospitals, women’s refugees, and victim support services. To aid their phenomenal work, Barratt North Thames is supporting the charity through a community fund donation over the festive period.

Marc Woolfe, Director of Sales & Marketing for Barratt David Wilson North Thames, comments: “Here at Barratt North Thames, we believe no child should miss out on the joys of growing up and experiencing new adventures, especially over Christmas, which is why we have extended our support to the Happy Days Charity. Their invaluable work has become a lifeline for many families within the Hertfordshire area to ensure their children are able to enjoy their lives to the fullest. We hope our support can provide more opportunities for the children to enjoy new and exciting ventures, whilst aiding their growth as a charity.”

A representative from Happy Days Charity, adds: “Our charity is so much more than just organising a nice day out for children in Hertfordshire – we are hoping to make a difference in their lives. It is through the kind donations of the local community and organisations which aid us in our work to provide the best for these children, and we are so grateful to Barratt North Thames for their generosity. We are certain that such support will better their confidence and make an impact for the better.”
