Berkshire children’s disability charity receives £1,000 donation from homebuilder

David Wilson Homes Southern has given its support to PALS (Partners For Active Leisure Scheme) West Berkshire with a £1,000 donation towards the charity which provides support for children and young people with physical disabilities.

In the West Berkshire area, PALS currently works with 40 families and provides parents with some wonderful options for their children to feel happy and part of a wider movement.

In reaching out to its local communities, the leading developer made the grand gesture as part of its Community Fund scheme to help the charity continue to meet the needs of its members and their families.

Helen Randall, Manager at PALS (West Berkshire), said: “We’re surprised but thrilled to have received the donation. We’d like to say a huge thank you to David Wilson Homes for choosing to support us through its Community Fund scheme. We’re hugely appreciative.

“We remain heavily reliant on voluntary donations from companies, trusts and foundations and individuals donating and fundraising for us.

“Without the public’s kind and generous backing, we wouldn’t be able to offer what we do for our families. Thanks to David Wilson Homes’ fantastic gesture, we can be there when it matters for our families, and provide a well-earned rest for parents while their children have a great time with us.”

PALS (West Berkshire)’s services include running an afterschool club and a youth group, as well as a range of activity-themed days out for those under their care. Popular pastimes include abseiling and sailing.

Campbell Gregg, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes Southern, said: “PALS carries out admirable work in West Berkshire and we’re proud that we can support the charity in continuing to make a difference to so many lives in the local community.

“The role of our Community Fund scheme is to back the wonderful charities and organisations in the areas in which we build and we’re thrilled we’ve been able to support PALS (West Berkshire) with our donation.”
