A DEVELOPER, which is building new homes in Wokingham and Spencers Wood, has thrown its support behind a Berkshire-based children’s charity.

David Wilson Homes Southern, which is currently involved in new developments at Montague Park and Croft Gardens, has announced Swings & Smiles as its Charity of the Year for 2017.

Staff who work for the developer, which is based in Hungerford, Berkshire, will commit the rest of the year to raising funds for the charity which supports children with special needs.

Swings & Smiles is committed to improving the life chances, health and well-being of children with special needs, their families and carers, by providing them with the opportunity to enjoy family play in safe and fully accessible environments at their facility in Newbury.

Paul Crispin, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes Southern, said: “We are delighted to announce that we have chosen our charity of the year for 2017 as the well deserving, locally based Swings & Smiles.

“It is a pleasure to be able to support the vital work being carried out by the team and the work they do for children with special needs is very admirable.

“Each year our company commits its fundraising efforts to a particular charity and we are looking forward to supporting Swings & Smiles throughout 2017.”

The charity’s founder, Sian Cook said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by David Wilson Homes Southern to be their Charity of the Year.

“We are working incredibly hard to raise money to fund the building of our new facility and support from David Wilson Homes will really help us with this goal.

“We are very grateful to everyone there for choosing to support us and helping us establish our long-term future.”
