Bristol housebuilder brings early Christmas cheer to children’s charity
06 December 2011
Christmas is a time for giving however, the season of goodwill has come a few weeks early for one national children’s charity thanks to a donation from Bristol-based housebuilders, Charles Church Severn Valley.Staff from Dreams Come True – a charity that supports seriously and terminally ill children by turning their dreams into reality – visited Charles Church’s offices at Churchward House, Yate, to receive a cheque from Charles Church workers for £6,173.34, which had been raised at the housebuilders’ annual golf day.
Carl Haley, managing director for Charles Church Severn Valley, said: “Each year, we strive to donate as much as possible to our nominated charity, Dreams Come True. Against such a difficult economic background, our fundraising efforts have been even more determined this year as we focused on maximising our support for the work that this charity does, not only in our region, but across the country.
“If charities are to continue with their valuable work, it’s crucial they receive funding and I hope our donation will help towards the continued success of Dreams Come True for many more years to come.”
Matthew Argenti from Dreams Come True, added: “We are delighted that Charles Church Severn Valley has recognised the valuable work carried out by charities and we thank them for this substantial donation. We would also like to congratulate them for their continued support, with 2012 marking their tenth anniversary of our partnership. As a result, we look forward to the next decade of working with the most prestigious housebuilder in the country.”
