Barratt Homes West Scotland held their annual charity dinner on Friday 19th February at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow. The event brought together colleagues, suppliers, contractors and friends in the industry to celebrate their achievements together and support their chosen charity.

This year, East Park was thrilled to be chosen as the beneficiary charity. Our Executive Director, Judy Cromarty, and Chair of the Board of Trustees, Kenneth Pinkerton, were honoured to attend and represent East Park on the evening.

A champagne reception welcomed the guests before being seated in the beautiful ballroom. A warm welcome from Barratt Homes West Scotland Managing Director, David Scott, and a competitive game of Heads and Tails kicked off the evening with how it intended to continue!  Judy Cromarty followed with a heartfelt insight into how East Park is supporting Scotland's most vulnerable children and young people. After a delicious meal and witty entertainment from after dinner speaker, Bill Coupland, the MC, Dougie Jackson, launched into the live auction creating a competitive spirit for the prizes at stake.

A fabulous evening was had by all and an incredible £44,542.50 was raised!

The funds raised will be used to fit out the new residential care facility that is currently under construction on Maryhill Road.

Judy Cromarty said: "We are overwhelmed by the support and generosity of Barratt West Scotland, their suppliers and contractors. The funds raised at the charity dinner will make a significant impact to the new respite, residential and education facilities being built. We can't thank everyone enough for their incredible kindness."

David Scott, managing director of Barratt Homes West Scotland, said: "East Park does fantastic work, helping young people with severe learning difficulties and their families. Our staff, contractors and suppliers rallied behind the cause and we are thrilled to be able to support the charity as it looks to build new facilities for its pupils."

We would like to thank: all the companies and individuals that donated such fantastic prizes for the raffle, games and auction; the guests for their overwhelming generosity on the night and finally Barratt Homes West Scotland for choosing East Park to benefit from such a wonderful event.
