Twyford-based Daisy’s Dream gets a helping hand

Staff and volunteers support families facing the death of a loved one Picture: Daisy’s Dream

A TWYFORD bereavement charity has been gifted £500 to help support families facing the death of a loved one.

As part of its Community Fund scheme, David Wilson Homes Southern is supporting Daisy’s Dream.

Gill Stevens, director of the charity said she was delighted the housebuilder chose Daisy’s Dream.

“This kind donation will make an immediate and positive impact on the lives of the children and families we support across the Berkshire area.

“David Wilson Homes’ Community Fund is a wonderful way of providing ongoing support to charities operating in our local communities

“We appreciate that businesses and their employees are currently facing many challenges of their own, so to take the time and trouble to choose us for a charity donation is especially poignant at this moment in time.”

Since 1996, Daisy’s Dream has supported those facing bereavement by flexible services delivered by their team of therapeutic practitioners, which includes telephone support for parents and carers, one-to-one sessions in the home or at school, whilst also providing training.

The charity does not charge for its service and relies primarily on support from local businesses and communities to fund its projects.

Paul Crispin, managing director at David Wilson Homes Southern, said he is proud to support the charity’s admirable work.

“Our Community Fund scheme is designed to support the excellent work of local charities and, as a leading housebuilder, it’s a privilege to be able to do our bit in the communities in which we build.”

The £500 donation will allow a child or young person and their family who are facing bereavement to be supported for up to a year.
