Reading Time: 2 minutes

Award-winning East Anglian developer, Hopkins Homes has invested in a new look for its website to showcase the incredible work of the Hopkins Charitable Fund.

The website offers rich information and imagery on charities and organisations that Hopkins Homes has supported since the Fund was set up in 2017.

Through small grants and major projects, Hopkins Homes has donated more than £820,000 to East Anglian charities and organisations to allow them to continue their vital work in the community. In addition, the housebuilder has preserved 11 war memorials and supported more than 35 community shops and pubs.

James Hopkins, Executive Chairman and Founder of Hopkins Homes, said: “We’ve been a proud part of the East Anglian landscape for over 30 years. As responsible housebuilders, we feel that it’s not just our duty, but our privilege to look after the area and enhance the communities we’re a part of.

“We’ve always supported local charities and in 2017 we wanted to underpin this by setting up the Hopkins Charitable Fund.

“Whether it’s the war memorials we’ve helped to restore, the life-changing international projects we’ve backed, or the charity votes we’ve run, the fund is our way of giving back help and support to those that need it most in our communities.

Suffolk charity, Rural Coffee Caravan is one of the charities who has benefitted from the Hopkins Charitable Fund. Rural Coffee Caravan helps isolated people in rural Suffolk access services and information, to improve their lives, health and wellbeing through establishing and building social networks.

Ann Osborn from the charity said: “The money was used to ensure we could reach out to as many elderly residents as possible and made a very tangible difference to the lives of vulnerable people in our communities.”

Hopkins Homes’ grants programmes are all run by the Community Foundations in each of Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk.

In addition to grants, the housebuilder also runs regular online votes in Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire which are decided by the public. The next of these will run later in 2021 and will be for Cambridgeshire.
