A variety of different fundraising events have seen employees running, walking, swimming, cycling, organising raffles and quizzes, and wearing Christmas jumpers.

Bill Fullen, Group Chief Executive at believe housing, said: “Part of our vision as an organisation is to transform the lives of others through the work we do.

“We’re incredibly proud of our colleagues from across the group for showing that they are willing to help transform people’s lives through fundraising too.

“The astounding generosity of our employees has benefited national charities such as Alzheimer’s Society, British Heart Foundation, Macmillan Cancer Support and Teenage Cancer Trust, as well as local causes including Durham Carers and Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice.”

believe housing was established in April 2015 and celebrates its first anniversary this week.

The group was formed following the transfer of homes from Durham County Council to Dale & Valley Homes, Durham City Homes and East Durham Homes.
