The Yorkshire division of national homebuilder, Bellway, which has both The Limes development on Manston Road in Cross Gates, Leeds and the Fenton Park development in Leeds New Forest Village, has backed a national heart disease campaign.
Earlier this month, staff showed their support for the British Heart Foundation’s (BHF) Ramp Up The Red campaign.
The entire Bellway Yorkshire team, including those working on its eight sites across the region, donned red outfits and each made a donation, as they joined in the battle against the disease, which is the UK’s single biggest killer - accounting for more than 74,000 deaths each year; an average of 200 people per day.
Ross Clarkson, Bellway’s Yorkshire divisional sales manager, said he was taken aback by the number of deaths. He said: “I was absolutely staggered when I read the statistics relating to the number of deaths relating to heart disease in the UK every year and was determined we should do our bit by supporting the BHF’s Ramp Up The Red Campaign.
“Admittedly our part is small, but every little bit helps and I’m sure if everyone did a little bit we could all make a real difference.”

Bellway has built more than 100,000 homes since its formation in 1946 and is today one of the largest housebuilders in the UK.
It is currently building on eight sites across Yorkshire.
