Kind Hearted Team Raise £6k for Charity Challenge

A team from Worcestershire based Lioncourt Homes has raised an impressive £6,000 by completing the Hope Challenge, Habitat for Humanity’s unique fundraising event for the housebuilding industry.

Set in the Derbyshire Peak District, the outdoor challenge involved designing and building an innovative shelter to live in for two nights and taking part in a series of fun, mental and physical challenges including trekking 30 kilometres over steep hills and in poor weather conditions.

Colin Cole, Chief Executive, Lioncourt Homes commented: “We are extremely proud of our team at Lioncourt Homes for participating in this fantastic challenge for such a worthwhile cause. The Hope Challenge is an opportunity for us to help to break the cycle of poverty and contribute to transforming the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable people. In our business, we put a roof over the head of our customers and through the Hope Challenge we will be helping to put a roof over the head of the most poverty-stricken people throughout the world”

Habitat for Humanity is one of the world’s leading shelter non-government organisations. As a humanitarian aid organisation, their mission is to build safe environments where families and communities can thrive. Millions of people live in substandard housing and it locks them into a cycle of poverty. This lack of housing affects people’s health and well-being, their job prospects, and their ability to make a living.

Collectively over £78,000 has been raised for Habitat for Humanity by 14 teams from across the housebuilding industry.
