The contribution comes as part of The Mulberry Community Chest, in which the developer provides monthly donations to organisations and charities local to its developments.

Bedford Giving’s activities have included grant giving, a volunteer career mentoring programme and work experience opportunities, with more interesting projects to come this year, following research carried out into gaps in support of young people’s mental health and what free activities are available in the borough.
