We have made a donation to a charity that supports adults with learning disabilities and autism, based near our Ravenden Park development in Graze Hill, Bedfordshire.
The charity, Living it Up, was founded in 2009 and provides social and educational opportunities to adults with learning disabilities and autism in and around Bedfordshire.
Some of the initiatives run by the charity include the performing arts centre which allows users to learn and showcase creative and performing arts, Gig Buddies which pairs adults with learning disabilities or autism with a DBS-checked volunteer who accompanies them to a social activity or gig, and GR8 Mates which is the charity’s new friendship and relationships project.
The donation comes as part of our Quintessentially Community Focused programme, which sees us giving back to charities in the communities it operates in.
Our contribution will be used to support the planning and production of the organisation’s annual theatre show.
Fizz Heseltine, CEO of Living it Up said: “Donations like this are invaluable to us as a small local charity, funding is tight for everyone and these donations mean that we have the opportunity to showcase the work of all those at the performing arts centre, which in turn helps to raise our profile locally and hopefully will help us get other small donations from the local community. Thank you very much Mulberry Homes.”
Kerry Jones, Sales and Marketing Director at Mulberry Homes, said: “Living it Up is a wonderful charity that provides an important service to its local community. It has a big impact despite being a small organisation and we are proud to contribute to that in any way we can. We hope everyone at Living it Up has a wonderful time at their show and we look forward to hearing more about the work the charity does going forward.”
