Leading developer has raised £10,863 at its inaugural annual charity golf day for North East homelessness charity, Oasis Community Housing.

The day welcomed 76 attendees, from employees to sub-contractors, who tee-ed off to raise awareness about homelessness across England and vital funds for the charity, which relies on donations to carry on the fantastic work it does across the region.

Launched nearly 40 years ago, Oasis Community Housing is a Christian charity that provides housing and support for people across the north east of England and south London. It addresses both immediate need and the root causes of homelessness through support which also includes helping to build confidence and feelings of self-worth and supporting women with young children who are experiencing domestic abuse 

Paul Devaney, regional managing director for Lovell North East, said: “This was our first golf day, and what a fantastic day it was. It was great to see so many of our sub-contractors come and show their support for a cause which does such excellent work across the north east community. It was brilliant to see so much talent out there on the golf course too, with huge congratulations to DJR Smith who were victorious on the day.

“We chose Oasis Community Housing as our charity of the year earlier this year and our recent golf day marks just one of the many events we have in the pipeline to help support the cause. From raffles to sports challenges, there’s still so much more to come as we continue our mission to help raise as much money as we can for the cause over the coming months.”

Throughout the day lots of generous prizes were also donated from businesses across the region and placed into a raffle followed by an auction and family friendly BBQ.

David Smith, chief executive at Oasis Community Housing added “We’d like to thank everyone who attended the Lovell North East golf day and those who donated to such a special cause. Our aim is to the transform communities by creating access to housing, addressing homelessness and journeying with people as they fulfil their God-given potential.

“We had such a lovely day. The funds raised will make a massive difference to the work we do. Our partnership with Lovell is hugely valuable to us and we are so excited to see what the future holds.”
