Little Hero Lodge access transformed to help families affected by childhood cancer

Barratt Homes has demonstrated its commitment to giving back to the community by volunteering for childhood cancer charity Little Hero.

Over the course of two days in May, a dedicated team of 12 volunteers rolled up their sleeves and embarked on a transformative project at the charity’s respite lodge, Will’s Woodland, near Tiverton.

The area was established as a haven for families affected by childhood cancer, providing a safe space away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and many family holiday destinations.

However, the lodge faced a significant challenge: its hot tub remained largely inaccessible due to the lack of a proper pathway. The only route was over a muddy field.

John from Little Hero joined forces with the Barratt Homes volunteer team to complete the project to create a stepping stone path to give families a safe route to unwind amidst the trees of Will’s Woodland.

Nicki Reid, sales director at Barratt David Wilson Homes, said: “We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to support Little Hero’s amazing work. Our volunteers had a fantastic time working together to make a real difference in the lives of these brave children and their families.

“We hope that this small contribution will bring joy and comfort to those who visit Will’s Woodland.”

John Rainsbury, chair of Little Hero, said: “We are hugely grateful to Barratt Homes for its generosity and hard work. The efforts will enhance the experience for our families and allow them to focus on making memories together, rather than struggling with muddy terrain. We are proud to have such wonderful partners supporting our cause.”
