Barratt and David Wilson Homes is supporting the Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI) after installing full size Tommy Club figures at its developments in Cambridgeshire for the 76th Victory in Europe Day (May 8th).
Barratt Developments was invited to become the Tommy Club’s first corporate patron through its relationship with the RBLI. The housebuilder donated £100,000 as an acceptance gift and has purchased Tommy Club figures from the RBLI to help them raise money.
The Tommy is now a universal symbol of gratitude and commemoration to all those who have served and sacrificed for our freedom.
The Tommy Club is a fundraising initiative launched by the RBLI which is a new and exciting way for people to support Armed Forces veterans. Tommy Club aims to create a new community that will provide the best possible care for the deserving veterans of recent conflicts.
Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ developments in the county are now proudly displaying the figures in the show home gardens to pay homage to the soldiers.
The funds raised through Tommy sales have helped to provide jobs, homes, and mental health support throughout the current pandemic. Those who have lost their jobs, their homes, their families, come to the home of the Tommy, the RBLI, for help.
Will Phair, Sales Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Cambridgeshire, said: “We are proud to support the Tommy Club by erecting the figures at our developments in Cambridgeshire.
“Not only will the funding help to support the fantastic work they are doing, the figures will also encourage our staff and residents to take a moment of reflection for those who served for our freedom.”
Tommy Club figures can be found in the gardens of the show home or sales office at the following Barratt Homes developments in the county: Hampton Water in Peterborough, Romans’ Edge in Godmanchester, Trumpington Meadows in Trumpington and Darwin Green in Cambridge.
They can also be found at the following David Wilson Homes developments in the county: Darwin Green in Cambridge, Northstowe near Cambridge, Trumpington Meadows in Trumpington, Warboys in Warboys and Needingworth Park in Needingworth.
