Variety logo

Variety, the Children’s Charity, has chosen to support Springwater through the proceeds of a number of our events to include; the Yorkshire Property Awards, Crystal Event and Yorkshire Residential Property Awards.

Earlier this year, the Yorkshire region of Variety launched a Big Build initiative, whereby we have appealed to our contacts across the Yorkshire property sector to ask for their time and resources as well as their financial aid. This is with the aim of creating a state of the art sensory room (which was completed in February 2018), a purpose built rebound therapy facility and an all-inclusive playground.

Work is progressing to schedule with the site expected to be cleared and initial levels established by the end of next week.

Recovery of approximately 60sq metres of land has been achieved by moving our security fence to our actual boundary. This area was a no-mans land covered in brambles and debris.
