SUFFOLK COMMUNITY GIVEN A BOOST

SUffolk CommunityA total of ten Suffolk community groups and projects have been given a financial boost this year from the Suffolk Foundation, following a donation by Hopkins Homes, East Anglia’s premier house builder. Each quarter, Hopkins Homes donates a substantial amount of money to the Suffolk Foundation, a grant giving organisation, who then divides the money between several local charities.
The worthy Suffolk groups who have been beneficiaries of the grant include Home-Start Babergh (a family support charity), The Suffolk Wildlife Trust, Beccles Sea Cadets, Lowestoft Community Church, Positive Parents Posse (which assists parents with children who have additional needs) and St John’s Ambulance.
Enid Kimes, Grants and Funding Officer, The Suffolk Foundation, comments: “We have a constant demand for grants from local community and voluntary groups which is why our various funds are so important. We are constantly on the look out for additional funding as this will allow us to award more and larger grants so that we can continue to make a genuine difference to the lives of people in Suffolk. Hopkins Homes has been donating funds to The Suffolk Foundation for 18 months and has played an instrumental role in the sustainability of the projects that receive their contribution.”
James Hopkins, Chief Executive, Hopkins Homes, comments: “We are very much a part of Suffolk and we are delighted to be in a position where we can offer additional support to our local community. Working with the Suffolk Foundation has meant that we have been able to help a large number of very worthy causes. Volunteers willingly give their time and compassion and the work that they do is an invaluable asset to the community.” Hopkins Homes is East Anglia’s most prolific housebuilder and each home is created to a high standard with Suffolk character and individuality.
Developments are influenced by the architectural vernacular of the surrounding villages. Houses are set along quiet avenues and cul-de-sacs flanked by attractive, mature landscaping and manicured lawns. Interiors offer contemporary design features and fixtures that are highly sought after by today’s modern house buyer. Recently launched developments, by Hopkins Homes include Albany Place, in Ipswich, Suffolk, a development of 36 two, three, four and five bedroom houses and Tibby’s Triangle, in Southwold, Suffolk, a collection of 34 one, two, three, four and five bedroom apartments and houses.
