Pete Calveley, Chairman of Barchester’s Charitable Foundation explains: “We help older people and other adults with disabilities by giving grants to help people connect or reconnect with others in their local community. Every single individual or small local charity that we have helped during 2020 has faced serious challenges of isolation and loneliness during a very tough year, and we are immensely proud to have been able to help them.
“We are delighted to be launching our new website. The internet is a hugely important source of new enquiries for us, and we hope that we have created a clear and informative website for anyone looking to us for help, wishing to make a donation or wanting to get involved.”
Despite a very challenging year in 2020, Barchester’s Charitable Foundation is pleased to announce it was able to gift £166,000 in grants to provide vital help to 65 small groups and charities, and 112 individuals.
