Children in Need received a big donation from a Yate based housebuilder last week.

Cotswold Homes that works in the local area hold numerous charity fundraising events throughout a year.

The company donated £5000 to the charity, ending their fundraising year.

The Yate-based company, currently building new homes in Chipping Sodbury, Tytherington, Mangotsfield and Rangeworthy, said they always aim to ‘put something back’ into the communities.

"We decided to support Children in Need with a significant donation," said Terri Hayes-Pugh, the firm’s sales and marketing director.

"After all, who could be more important right now than the next generation and those who follow in our footsteps in the years ahead?"

It marks a huge investment which has seen them support other South Glos charities.
