Bellway funds welcome packs for our Stowmarket centre

A huge thank you to Bellway Homes for their recent support for young people supported by our charity in Suffolk.

The housebuilder has contributed £500 to fund welcome packs for teenagers when they first arrive at The Mix House, one of our centres in Stowmarket.

Bellway is building homes at Pinewood Grange in Stowmarket, just over a mile from The Mix House, which provides accommodation and individual care for 16 to 18-year-olds. The welcome packs provided include essential items such as bedding, toothbrushes and towels.

Multi-Service Manager at The Benjamin Foundation, Luvuyo Mfazwe, said: “We provide a safe home and support to up to 180 vulnerable young people in Norfolk and Suffolk each night, including our accommodation facility in Stowmarket.

“Having the support of local people and businesses is very important because it enables us to do even more to help young people who may not have had the best start in life.

“We are extremely grateful to Bellway for this generous donation of £500. This will help us to provide welcome packs for young people when they may arrive at our services with few items of their own.”

Rachael Gatehouse, Sales Manager for Bellway Eastern Counties, said: “As a housebuilder, we are committed to supporting charities which help provide care and accommodation for those without a home.

“We are therefore very pleased to be able to fund the welcome packs for youngsters arriving at The Mix House in Stowmarket and provide direct support for young people in the town who are most in need.

“We are focused on meeting the need for new homes in the area, with 49 of the 141 homes we are building at Pinewood Grange provided as affordable housing for local people through low-cost rent or shared ownership.”
