Local homebuilder Barratt David Wilson Homes Exeter has donated £2,500 to Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW), as part of the leading housing developer’s Community Fund initiative, and their wish to spread Christmas cheer.
The Barratt Developments Community Fund initiative looks to support causes that have a positive impact within their local communities. For 30 years, CHSW has been providing crucial care to children with life-limiting conditions and their families. The charity’s Little Bridge House children’s hospice near Barnstaple in North Devon, alongside Little Harbour in St Austell, and Charlton Farm near Bristol, are dedicated to making the most of short and precious lives.
All three hospices provide vital care and support for the whole family in a home-from-home setting away from hospital wards and operating theatres. They deliver a range of services, including short breaks; specialist play; music therapy; activities for siblings; bereavement support; and specialist medical, palliative, emergency and end-of-life care – all available 24 hours-a-day, 365 days-a-year.
Emma Perry, Head of Fundraising at Little Bridge House, said: "We are incredibly grateful to Barratt David Wilson Homes for their generous donation, which will help provide vital care for local families facing unimaginable challenges this Christmas, and beyond."
Nicki Reid, sales director for Barratt David Wilson Homes Exeter, said, "It’s great to be able to support a cause like the Children’s Hospice South West. Christmas is a time where what matters most is being with those we love, and it’s down to the brilliant work of everyone at Little Bridge House that children who are suffering can enjoy Christmas like any other child would.
Community is at the heart of our developments and we are thrilled to support local charities like CHSW that make an enormous difference in our communities. We are warmed that this donation is going towards such a valuable and necessary cause.
