A HOUSING developer has partnered with a local charity supporting vulnerable people to help deliver a special Christmas to those who need it most.

Barratt Developments North East, which includes both Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes brands, has partnered with North-East charity, Changing Lives.

To support its partnership, the housebuilder is calling on North-East residents for their support in donating gifts to drop-off stations located in every sales office across the region.

This includes the office at the Woodland Rise estate in Hexham.

Changing Lives, which is a national charity based in the North-East, was dedicated to providing specialist support for vulnerable people and their families across the region, helping them to make meaningful and lasting improvements to their lives.
