Giving Something Back

96% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

For the last two years Story Homes has funded a sports programme which supports nine schools in Carlisle which is ran in partnership with Carlisle District Sport and Physical Activity Alliance Foundation (SPAAF). The programme funds physical education lessons for schools. It started in September 2012, aiming to keep the Olympic legacy alive amongst school pupils. Fred Story was inspired to contact SPAAF and get the scheme up and running after learning that funding for sport in schools was being cut, leaving children with even less opportunity to participate in the sport they had seen in the Olympic Games. Through Story Homes funding, SPAAF coaches spent half a day each week working with the children in their own schools, teaching new sports and encouraging them to get involved in physical activity. They promoted health, hygiene and fitness alongside confidence, self-esteem and motivation to achieve and succeed in sport. In 2010, in order to showcase and encourage interest in site based careers such as bricklaying, joinery, roofing, plumbing and groundworks, Story Homes recruited a team of apprentices, along with their subcontractors, who were challenged to build a 4-bed house at their Magellan Park development. This was filmed and shown on ITV4 in March 2011 as part of a three part series called "Rookie Builders." The majority of apprentices were recruited from the high unemployment area following a jobs fair in order for local people and the community to benefit .

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
