A children’s charity in Wraxall has benefited from a £1,000 donation from a housebuilder.

The David Wilson Homes Community Fund presented Children's Hospice South West (CHSW) with the funds to support the work it does in caring for children with life-limiting conditions.

Louise Ware, sales director at David Wilson Homes, said: "Children's Hospice South West is a wonderful charity that helps children and families in the most desperate of times and we're thrilled to be able to support such a worthwhile cause."

Karen Mathie, from CHSW, is thrilled with the donation.

She said: "By providing a much-needed break, our families build a treasure-chest of precious memories to carry into the future, a future which will sadly be without their much-loved child or children.

"And our support and contact will continue for as long as they need us. We are very grateful for David Wilson Homes' cash boost."
