Equans donates quality show-home furniture to Winsford charity

Regeneration specialists Equans is delighted to have donated surplus furniture from New Build housing scheme ‘Woodlands’ to local ‘The Salvation Army’ branch.

Woodlands, a 268-home regeneration project in the heart of Winsford, will see much needed one, two, three and four-bedroom low-carbon homes constructed across 17 acres. Homes are available for open market sale, shared ownership and affordable rent tenures.

Due to the nature of the show homes, some items of furniture previously on display are surplus to requirements. Equans has a dedicated Social Value team with strong links in Winsford, meaning The Salvation Army were easily identified as beneficiaries of the furniture. The furniture, and furnishings, will be going to various families and individuals in need.
The Salvation Army visited Woodlands in July to collect their share, which was handed over by Equans’ Social Value Officer, Nicki Sorton.

Nicki said: “We’re delighted to have found another fitting charity that can benefit from our Woodlands scheme in Winsford. Equans now has strong roots in the area having delivered £223,661.63 of Social Value since work started last year, and it’s great to see The Salvation Army being supported.”

Gareth Dickens, Commanding Officer for The Salvation Army’s Winsford Corps, said: “It’s been great to work with Nicki and Equans for several years now supporting our Christmas Toy & Gift appeal, and their support has always been most appreciated. This donation is also greatly appreciated and will be used locally to support families and individuals we work with including refugees from Iran and other countries looking to start a new life and contribute to the community here in Winsford. Thank you once again on behalf of those who will benefit from this generosity.”

Woodlands offers a range of stylish and well-presented detached, semi-detached and mews properties. Ranging from two to four bedrooms, the development is perfectly suited for first-time buyers, professionals, and young families. Show homes at Woodlands are now available for viewing, with plots available to reserve now. Opening hours for the Marketing Suite are as follows: Thursday to Monday, 10am-5pm. For further information, you can contact the team on 01606 828745.

The development is a joint venture between QWest Homes (Cheshire West and Chester Council ‘CWAC’ & EQUANS) and Riverside Group Ltd.
