Guildford-based charity halow project has ended a year of fundraising on a high, receiving a record donation from developers Barratt Homes of £124,481.

Developer Barratt Southern Counties chose the halow project as its chosen charity for 2022 and raised £124,481 for it.

Barratt Southern Counties says halow was its chosen as charity of the year for 2022. Its staff took part in several fundraising activities, starting in May with a 100-kilometre hike along the coast in Dorset, that raised more than £19,000 alone.

The head of fundraising and communications at the halow project, Rachelle Barnett, said: “Barratt Southern Counties’ donation will help change the lives of the adults we support at halow.

“It is a fantastic boost to the funding for our diverse services for young people in and around Guildford and Woking, benefitting people across Surrey.

“We are so grateful to the team at Barratt’s for their incredible efforts and all the energy they have put into some highly imaginative fundraising this year; we can’t thank them enough.”

The managing director for Barratt Southern Counties, Julian Hodder, added: “This organisation is very close to our hearts, and is the centre of a crucial network of support and opportunities for local young people with learning disabilities, helping them to take independent steps in their adulthood.”
