A leading Nottinghamshire housebuilder has donated £1,500 to Nottingham Hospitals Charity’s neonatal service, to help enhance care facilities available for newborn babies.

The donation, provided by David Wilson Homes, was part of the developer’s Barratt Developments Plc Charitable Foundation, which is designed to support national and local charities, large and small, across the UK to leave a legacy in the communities in which the housebuilder operates.

Nottingham Hospitals Charity, based in the city centre, supports Nottingham’s four NHS hospitals, including Queen’s Medical Centre, City Hospital, Ropewalk House and the Nottingham Children’s Hospital. The charity works with fundraisers, volunteers, patients, businesses, NHS staff and other local communities to make hospital care in Nottingham the best it can be. 

Joanne Burr, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Nottingham Hospitals Charity, said: “It’s fantastic that David Wilson Homes has chosen to support Nottingham Hospitals Charity, their donation will make a big difference to patient care in Nottingham’s NHS hospitals.

“Significant donations like this make a big difference. The fund will be made available for members of staff in the neonatal area of the hospital to apply for grants, on projects such as improving patient facilities, funding state-of-the-art equipment and staff wellbeing initiatives.”

Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, John Reddington, said: “As a leading housebuilder, we endeavour to have a positive and lasting impact in the communities in which we build. 

“We’re very pleased to hear that our donation will make a difference to Nottingham Hospitals Charity, and we hope that it enables the charity to improve and maintain the vital services it provides across the hospitals.” David Wilson Homes is part of Barratt Developments PLC, a FTSE100 company.
