We were delighted to welcome David Wilson Homes to Demelza Kent where they presented a donation for £15,000 to support clinical care and emotional support services provided to children with serious or life-limiting conditions.

Here at Demelza, our services are vital in aiding children and their families through difficult times. In recognition of these efforts, David Wilson Kent’s Managing Director, Will Walsh, visited Demelza Kent to find out more about the work carried out there and future plans for our organisation, before ending the visit with a cheque of £15,000 to contribute to the ongoing costs of providing care.

Will Walsh, Managing Director at David Wilson Kent, said: “Cuts to our healthcare service has been tough on many, but its impact on children’s healthcare funding has been one of the most hard-hit areas. Our children’s health should not be compromised, and all too often we rely on charities such as Demelza to provide care to those who need it most. It was an extremely insightful opportunity to visit Demelza’s centre in Sittingbourne, and to see one of their play groups in action truly showcased how important charities like this are in our local area. We are so proud to partner with Demelza, whose incredible efforts have supported families for decades, and we hope our help adds to their work in continuing to make a difference.”

Lavinia Jarrett, Chief Executive at Demelza, said:We were delighted to welcome Will to our hospice in Sittingbourne to see first-hand how the incredible donation from David Wilson Homes is making a difference. 86% of our funding comes from our generous supporters, helping us to provide outstanding clinical care, short breaks, family liaison, creative therapies, end of life care and bereavement services to families in the South East. Thank you, we couldn’t do what we do without your support”.

Thank you to all at David Wilson Homes for their ongoing support.
