Local company makes large donation
We’re delighted to have received over £55K from Berkshire-based David Wilson Homes, following a year of staff fundraising.
The generous donation has been raised by local staff who organised dress down days and various in-house raffles, with the main event being a sports dinner at Reading Football Club’s, Madejski Stadium.
Paul Crispin, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes Southern, said:
“We are pleased to announce that we have managed to raise over £55,000 for our charity of the year, the Thames Valley Air Ambulance.
“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.
“The TVAA was chosen as our charity of the year in January and since then our staff have been working to raise funds for the cause, with a sports charity dinner being the final event towards the end of 2019.”
Samantha Collier, Corporate Partnerships Manager at the TVAA, receiving the cheque at David Wilson Homes’ Croft Gardens development in Reading said:
“We are truly humbled by the support we have received from David Wilson Homes. They have been an absolute pleasure to partner with. On behalf of everyone at Thames Valley Air Ambulance, we would like to thank them for their generosity and kindness.
This donation will help to ensure that our paramedics and doctors can be there when the worst happens, delivering emergency medical care at the scene of the incident across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.
