Upper Lighthorne housebuilder's charity donation goes to the dogs

Leamington Editorial 5th Apr, 2024   0

WHEN it comes to charity donations, an Upper Lighthorne housebuilder has gone to the dogs.

David Wilson Homes donated £1,500 to sight loss charity Guide Dogs through its community fund scheme.

Guide Dogs is renowned for its life-changing work in providing assistance and companionship to individuals with visual impairments, and the contribution will go towards the training, care, and support of guide dogs, enabling them to transform the lives of those with sight loss.

And this is the second donation David Wilson Homes has made to Guide Dogs in the past year.

The housebuilder also enjoyed the chance to name one of the charity’s puppies.

Felicity Stratton from Guide Dogs, said: “We’re very pleased to hear that we’ve been chosen to receive another donation from David Wilson Homes.

“It costs £81.6million to deliver our services for people with sight loss each year and, as a charity, we rely almost entirely on donations such as this one to keep our life-changing services running.”

Named ‘Wilson’, the puppy sponsored by David Wilson Homes is currently undergoing his training and while having a lot more to learn, explore and experience, Guide Dogs will be there to guide him every step of the way.

Dominic Harman, managing director at David Wilson Homes Mercia, added: “We are thrilled to support Guide Dogs through our community fund scheme, and it’s an honour to be part of the incredible work it does to provide independence and companionship to individuals with visual impairments.

“Naming one of the guide dog puppies is a fantastic opportunity and it’s a privilege to share the meaningful impact the charity has on the lives of many people.”
