Inspiring Business by Sharing Success


A local animal sanctuary in Markfield has received a £500 donation from a Leicestershire based homebuilder that will aid funding towards the charity’s vet bills.

Leading developer David Wilson Homes, who is based in Bardon, has helped Redgate Animal Sanctuary with the funds and has also donated a cabin to the farm which will be used as an onsite charity shop.

The donation is part of the homebuilder’s Community Fund scheme.

The grant was presented to the Shaw Lane sanctuary recently by Assistant Site Manager Dene Goodacre.

Leah, Animal Carer from Redgate Farm Animal Sanctuary, said:

“We would like to say a tremendous thank you to David Wilson Homes for the amazing financial donation that we have just received as well as the cabin donation!

“This will help our small charity immensely. We will be using the money to help us towards our vet bills which can be extremely high this time of year due to the high volumes of kittens that we help.

“It is amazing to see large companies like David Wilson Homes giving back to the community by supporting small local charities like Redgate, we are so grateful for these donations!”

farm was nominated by Tracey Dickens, Commercial Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, who said the cause was close to her heart.

John Reddington, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, believes the Community Fund scheme is a wonderful way to engage with the nearby area and fund improvements that locals can see for themselves.

“Ever since the launch of our Community Fund scheme, we have been able to provide heartfelt charities and organisations with funding that has enabled them to make a real difference.”
