Every Head A Bed: Redrow’s Pledge Continues

Homebuilder Redrow is continuing to help Every Head A Bed, a Leeds-based charity, with funding for bed bundles for families in need.

A PARTNERSHIP between a bed charity in Leeds and a homebuilder has resulted in funding for a further 17 bed bundles for families in need.

Redrow made the pledge in September 2022 to Zarach’s ‘Every Head A Bed’ initiative, with the homebuilder donating funds with every new show home bedroom opened in Yorkshire. Redrow’s latest donation of £2,550 will fund a further 17 bed bundles, making a total so far of more than 80 bundles.

The latest donation was handed over to Zarach’s Ellie McGrath at the launch of Redrow’s latest development, Woodland Vale in Wakefield. Ellie is pictured with Jon Handley, Redrow Yorkshire’s MD, and Steve Jackson, Sales Director, Redrow Yorkshire

Zarach was started in 2017 by Leeds deputy head teacher Bex Wilson and officially founded as a charity in 2018. It aims to support children and their families who are living in poverty.

The bed bundles include a bed, bedding, pyjamas and hygiene products. A copy of the charity’s bedtime book Zed Ted is given to every new Redrow Yorkshire homeowner.

Andy Peers, CEO of Zarach: “Zarach is a national charity committed to helping vulnerable children living in poverty. By providing beds and bed bundles, we are lifting children out of bed poverty, helping to ensure that they get a good night’s sleep and have an equal opportunity at school. Thanks to our partnerships with organisations like Redrow and other generous donations, we have delivered over 8,000 bed bundles to children who have been
living without. The latest generous donations from Redrow will help us continue supporting families in need and changing the narrative for these children.”

Steve Jackson, sales director for Redrow Yorkshire: “We continue to support and spread the word about this wonderful charity amongst our colleagues and residents.The team at Zarach work hard to provide a much-needed service to children and families across Yorkshire. We are really pleased to continue our pledge offering again with this donation. Thank you to Ellie for joining us at the launch of The Glade at Woodland Vale and for officially opening our development.”
