David Wilson Homes Domates ₤1,000 to Brainwave

 Foot scanner bought with donation from:- 'Our Space Your Place'

WARRINGTON based David Wilson Homes (DWH) North West has donated ₤1000 to Brainwave, a charity which provides exercise and therapy programmes for disabled children across the UK.

The money donated was raised through the company's 'Our Space Your Place' scheme. The scheme aims to support community projects and local charities.

Since launching:- 'Our Space Your Place', David Wilson Homes has worked on a number of projects with schools and charities, a few include:- Liverpool's Alder Hey Children's Charity, Tarporley CE Primary School, Elworth Hall Primary and The Wingate Special Children's Trust.

The ₤1000 generously donated by David Wilson Homes will go towards purchasing equipment that can be used to aid development and motor skills in the children when they leave Brainwave. This means that there is no delay in getting started on the exercises when the children return home.

The Manchester based charity was founded in 1982 and has since helped families in the:- UK, Finland, Switzerland and Japan. Children at Brainwave attend a two day therapy session where full assessments of the child's needs are carried out by a physiotherapist, occupational therapist or speech therapist.

Over the years, Brainwave's package of support has been specifically tailored to respond to a family's current concerns and needs. Although the charity is relatively small, it is a vital contributor to the large number of parents who want to play a very pro-active part in their child's development and potential.

Steve Jackson, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes North West said:- "We are so pleased to be able to help such a wonderful charity. We know that the money will go a long way in helping disabled children in our community and we are grateful to be in the position where we can help."

Anthony LaMola, Centre Manager at Brainwave Cheshire said:- "We are so grateful to David Wilson Homes for their generous donation and continued support. The money received will really help us to provide good quality equipment for all the children. This means that no child will have to wait to start home exercises once they leave us, meaning they have a better chance at development."
