Prospect Hospice given a £50,000 boost by David Wilson Homes

January 2019


We were delighted recently to receive a £50, 000 donation from the Southern office of David Wilson Homes, who chose us as their charity of the year for 2018.

The firm held a number of events through the year, including a charity sports dinner where attendees included former professional rugby players Neil Back, Simon Shaw and Zinzan Brooke. Additionally they had a dress down day and various in-house raffles, and the office’s fundraising was given an additional £15,000 boost through a donation made by parent company Barratt Developments.

Sheryl Crouch, our Head of Fundraising, said: “We are extremely grateful for this incredible donation and would like to thank everyone at David Wilson Homes’ Southern office. With over £6m to raise each year, support from organisations and individuals in the local community plays a vital part in enabling us to continue to care for and support the 7,300 patients and family members when they need us most.

“We are always looking for opportunities to work with local organisations so this partnership has been a very welcome one and we hope the generosity of David Wilson Homes will encourage other local organisations to work with us in the future.”

Managing director at David Wilson Homes Southern Paul Crispin said: “We are delighted to have managed to raise £50,000 for Prospect Hospice. As a leading housebuilder we understand the importance of supporting charities and communities and strive to give back wherever we can. It is a pleasure to be able to support the vital work being carried out by the charity and the work they do is very admirable.

“Prospect Hospice was chosen as our charity of the year in January last year and since then our staff have been working to raise funds for the cause, with the main event being a sports charity dinner.”

The cheque for £50,790 will go towards funding supporting people with life-limiting illnesses.
