Local developers in Woolwich support Help for Heroes with £7,500 donation
Lovell Homes donated £7,500 to Help for Heroes in a cheque presentation at its Woolwich development Trinity Walk, recognising the area’s strong military heritage and supporting the charity’s important work.
The donation was raised by Lovell Homes putting aside £50 for every home purchased at Trinity Walk to date, and was collected by James Burns of Help for Heroes and Major John Eldridge from Royal Artillery Barracks.
Students from nearby Welling School presented the donation, which was creatively symbolised as large individual numbers, decorated by the children with images inspired by the charity.
Trinity Walk, being delivered by partners Lovell Homes, PA Housing and the Royal Borough of Greenwich, is the first phase of a project which is transforming three ageing estates in Woolwich to create desirable yet affordable places for city living.
The development is part of the ongoing regeneration in Woolwich, which has already benefitted from new green areas and amenities. A further boost to the area will be the arrival of Crossrail later in 2018, which will provide quicker journeys into the centre of London. With 12 services an hour, passengers from Woolwich will be able to reach Canary Wharf in eight minutes, Liverpool Street in 14 minutes and Bond Street in just 22 minutes.
