Mears donate over £14,000 to Cross Keys Homes’ support fund

Cross Keys Homes (CKH) contractors Mears have donated over £14,000 to the housing association’s support fund.

This forms part of Mears’ added value contract agreement with CKH, which states that a proportion of their profits will be donated back to the housing association each year as part of their corporate social responsibility commitment.

To help celebrate the substantial donation, CKH and Mears held a football tournament friendly where the cheque was presented with colleagues from both organisations in attendance.

CKH Contracts Manager, David Vernon-Richardson, said: “It was wonderful to get together socially with Mears to celebrate the donation over a friendly football tournament after a difficult year following the pandemic. We are extremely grateful to Mears for this donation which will make a positive difference to so many of our residents who are in greatest need.”

Gary Gibbs, Peterborough Branch Manager of Mears, added: “The Mears team were very happy to do something to support the CKH fund for residents and we’re really pleased with the amount raised. We had 14 players from Mears participate and a number of spectators from both Mears and CKH who should be thanked. 

“This was also a great team building exercise which saw both back-office staff, operatives and our clients come together.”
