Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

A par-fect day fore golfing at the David Wilson Homes charity fundraiser

David Wilson Homes has not only hit golf balls but also the five star homebuilder’s fundraising goal at a charity tournament with its staff for Alzheimer’s Society, which is the leading developer’s charity of the year.

70 golfers, including David Wilson Homes’ staff, suppliers and subcontractors have raised £7,044.76 at a charity golf tournament, which was held at Willesley Park Golf Club in Ashby-de-la-Zouch.

The amount raised was matched by the homebuilder’s parent company, Barratt Developments, to take the total amount to £14,089.52. Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity, working tirelessly to challenge perceptions, fund research and improve care and support. It’s predicted that, by 2021, a million of us will have dementia and two million by 2051.

Darren Langton, Construction Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said:

“The tournament was a lot of fun for all who took part and was made even sweeter from knowing we were raising money for a great cause. A lot of us know people with dementia, so knowing we’re doing our part to help makes it worthwhile.”

The money raised by David Wilson Homes will support the charity’s research, campaigning and local support for people with dementia.

Heidi Wilkinson, Community Fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society in the East Midlands, said:

“We want to say a big thankyou to David Wilson Homes for uniting against dementia and helping our vital work. Too many people are facing dementia alone and we urgently need to improve care, offer help and understanding and find new treatments for the people affected.”
