Redrow Homes South Midlands, currently building at Bloxham Vale, on Bloxham Road, has presented Home-Start Banbury, Bicester and Chipping Norton with a donation of £1,000.


The funds will be used to aid the voluntary organisation, which promotes the welfare of families with young children, to continue offering invaluable support to local people. The funding will enable the charity to increase its capacity to help meet the surge in demand that has been caused by the current pandemic.


Offering both emotional and practical help, Home-Start Banbury, Bicester and Chipping Norton has adapted its services to enable its volunteers to continue to support families in the area remotely.


Louise Sansom, grants and trusts fundraiser at Home-Start Banbury, Bicester and Chipping Norton, said: “We are incredibly grateful to receive Redrow’s donation – it will make such a difference to the wellbeing of local families.


“The practical and emotional demands of parenthood are challenging enough in normal times, but the current pandemic adds so many additional layers of anxiety, uncertainty and isolation.


“We remain as committed as ever to supporting parents in the critical early years of childhood and the funding will allow us to continue to support the local community over the next few months.”


Suzanne Irons, sales director for Redrow Homes South Midlands, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Home-Start Banbury, Bicester and Chipping Norton’s initiative, which provides a vital service to those living in the area.


“Supporting local organisations is part of our commitment to creating thriving communities. The pandemic is impacting people in many ways, and we are proud to be able to play our part in supporting local people though these challenging times.”


Bloxham Vale is a picturesque development surrounded by open fields and charming rural villages. Situated just a few minutes’ drive from Banbury, and with direct trains to London in less than an hour, the superb location offers the benefits of a rural setting with excellent travel links. The development is also an ideal location for families, with a number of schools and GP surgeries close-by, as well as shopping and amenities in nearby Banbury.


Upon reopening last month, Bloxham Vale made a number of modifications to allow prospective house buyers to visit safely, including offering exclusive, unaccompanied slots for viewings, ensuring sales consultants are always two metres away from the customer, and installing protective screens and hand sanitiser throughout the sales centre.
