Barchester’s Charitable Foundation donates £225k to good causes

Barchester’s Charitable Foundation has announced that it achieved a donation milestone of £225,000 in 2023.

Reaching the milestone enabled the charity to provide vital help to a staggering 160 small groups and charities, plus 87 individuals in one year alone.

Established in 2000, Barchester’s Charitable Foundation was established to help older people and adults living with a disability or mental health problems. The charity provides grants to improve mobility and quality of life, distributing thousands of pounds to individuals, small community groups, and charities across the UK every year.

The money to help good causes comes from the support of Barchester Healthcare and its staff, who fundraise through events such as the annual Barchester Golf Tournament and Tour de Barchester cycle ride. In addition, team members organise fundraising activities at Barchester’s care homes and hospitals and personal challenges such as skydiving and participation in events such as the Ride100 cycle race and the Great North Run. All money raised by staff is matched pound for pound by the business. The Charitable Foundation also receives legacies from residents.

Simon McCall, chairperson of Barchester’s Charitable Foundation and Barchester’s commercial director, said: “We support older people and other adults with disabilities by giving grants to help people connect or reconnect with others in their local community. Every single individual or small local charity that we have helped over the past year has faced serious challenges during very tough times, and we are immensely proud to have been able to help each and every one of them through the kindness, support and generosity of our fundraisers and donors.”
