IM Properties launched a £270,000 community fund to assist local projects surrounding their Peddimore employment park.
Part of that was The Peddimore Community Fund, managed by the Foundation it launched in 2019 and the fund has been supporting projects based in north-east Birmingham ever since! At the time of the launch, David Smith, planning director at IM Properties, said the fund was part of an extensive Social Value programme being implemented at Peddimore to deliver social and economic benefits to the local community.
“We’ve said from the beginning that Peddimore is all about leaving a positive lasting legacy for the local community, and the Peddimore Community Fund is one of the many initiatives being undertaken by IM Properties to deliver real social benefits to the area, in addition to the significant job creation.
“As a company and as individuals, IM Properties and its supply chain are all signing up to donate both time and money to directly support organisations most in need of assistance, where we can make the greatest difference. This fund takes us one step further towards achieving our objectives.”
The Foundation takes pride in working with large, local corporates and partnering with IM Properties for the Peddimore Community Fund was a great honour. Tina Costello, Chief Executive of Heart of England Community Foundation, said:
“We were very excited to start working with IM Properties on the Peddimore Community Fund and we’ve supported some great local initiatives since then.
“IM Properties have really showcased their commitment to their communities and we’ve enjoyed being part of their journey.”
