Grand gesture: Hospice charity receives donation from Northamptonshire homebuilder

Marie Curie, the UK’s leading end of life charity, has received a £1,000 donation from Northampton-based housebuilder David Wilson Homes to assist with its work.

The charity supports everyone in the UK through all aspects of dying, death and bereavement. Its aim is to fight for a society where everyone gets to have the best experience possible at the end of their lives.

The contribution from the leading housebuilder will help Marie Curie continue to provide frontline care. The charity also provides vital bereavement support for family and friends.

Peter Sara, Community Fundraiser at Marie Curie, said:

“We were over the moon when we were contacted by David Wilson Homes. It is always brilliant when local companies contact us and offer to support our important work.

“The donation of £1,000 will fund 50 hours of nursing care in patients’ homes. Our nurses care for people in their homes, giving much-needed respite to overstretched carers.

“They provide a lifeline at one of the most frightening and upsetting times any family will face. Last year, our nurses cared for almost 36,000 people.

“David Wilson Homes’ Community Fund Scheme is a brilliant initiative helping local charities to reach their potential. I would like to say thank you to David Wilson Homes on behalf of all the families of people living with a terminal illness in the Midlands.”

John Dillon, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said:

“As a leading housebuilder we strive to support the communities in and around the areas in which we build, and we are delighted to be able to offer Marie Curie a donation to support the fantastic work it does.”
