Community benefit from Orbit housing development

Community benefit from Orbit housing development

Orbit Homes has donated items from its former marketing suite in Stratford-upon-Avon to support community causes.

The suite, which was based in the Arden Quarter site – a development offering a range of houses and apartments in the town centre, has now closed as there are just three apartments remaining for sale. Items that were in the suite including a kitchen, kitchen appliances and furniture have all been donated to community groups in Stratford-upon-Avon and beyond.

The Greig Hall in Alcester was one of the organisations to benefit from the donation after receiving a showhome kitchen complete with integrated appliances. Work is currently underway to refurbish the hall and turn it into a community centre and arts venue.

A dishwasher, fridge and five chairs were also donated to ToolShed in High Wycombe, which helps young people who have left school with few to no qualifications to start a career in construction. Whilst in Erith, South East London, King Henry School received a sofa, two armchairs and a desk.

Colin Dean, Sales and Marketing Director from Orbit Homes, commented: “After being on-site at Arden Quarter for four years, I can’t think of a better way to mark our departure. Not only have we had the pleasure of creating some fantastic new homes that people can be proud of, but by making this donation we can benefit the wider community in Stratford and beyond, ensuring that items that would otherwise be surplus to requirements are reused and put to good use elsewhere.”

Arden Quarter is on Brunel Way with a range of apartments and houses which were available for sale, Shared Ownership, affordable rent and retirement living, ideally located close to the town centre and all its amenities.
