NPT Homes’ Community Challenge to Help Transform Local Projects

Tue 10 Jan 2017

Community Challenge

For the fifth year running, NPT Homes is on the hunt for community projects in need of a transformation.

The Community Challenge is a joint partnership programme between the housing provider and its main contractors which allows different community projects to benefit from a day of free building or maintenance work.

Last year, the challenge saw a record eight community projects benefit, including schools, churches and community halls.  The makeovers included the installation of new kitchens, seating areas and even a specially adapted play area for children.

Last year, Sandfields Methodist Church was one of the beneficiaries of the programme. Peter Davies from the church said:
“We benefited greatly from being involved in last year’s community challenge.  Our facility is a busy hub in the community and the work has allowed us to continue to host local groups.  I would urge anyone with a community facility that needs some work to apply for 2017, it could make a huge difference to them.”

NPT Homes’ Funding Officer, Andrew Hall, added:
"After the great success of our previous Community Challenge projects we are happy to bring the project back for 2017. I would encourage any local group in need of a makeover to get their applications in as the project really can help.”
