A giant yo-yo was suspended from a crane at one of our West Country developments as a spectacular way to raise money for a local charity struggling for funding.
The stunt in March at the Avonwick scheme, in South Hams, was to support Childline South-West as part of radio station Heart FM’s Be a Kid For a Kid Day which encouraged groups to collect cash by doing something playful.
Linden Homes South West at its Newton Abbot base encouraged staff, contractors and nearby businesses to perform the best trick, fastest moves and just to try the hardest!
More than 100 people got involved and had fun while donating money and also raising the profile of a charity that offers advice and a listening ear to some of the most vulnerable children in the region.
The progress was streamed on Heart FM’s website throughout the challenge day, as well as video clips.
Linden Homes South West managing director Bill Cawse said: “Everyone had a great time at the yo-yo challenge and we’re really proud to have played our part in helping a charity that is so important to youngsters needing help in this region.
“I congratulate our staff for putting in the effort and answering the call to help by organising the activities across three sites. They really demonstrated our commitment to get involved and play a positive role in the community.”
Linden Homes has contributed over £12.8 million towards outdoor open areas throughout the UK since 2010.
