Homebuilder helping sick children

Posted onPosted on 29th May

A charity that supports the families of children fighting cancer across Mansfield and Ashfield has thanked homebuilder David Wilson Homes for a donation.

It presented PASIC Cancer Support, a Nottingham-based charity that provides practical, social, emotional, and financial support for more than 450 families of children and young people with cancer in the East Midlands, with a cheque for £1,500.

Headquartered at Queen’s Medical Centre, PASIC helps hundreds of children, including their siblings, and offers vital support to parents and carers.

The contribution from David Wilson Homes will be used to support families with a child receiving cancer treatment, providing essential items and respite activities. This includes art activities, teenager pamper packs, and ‘movie-night’ packs, as well as items of comfort to improve life on a hospital ward.

Louise Towse, chief executive of the charity, said: “We’re incredibly grateful for David Wilson Homes choosing to support PASIC.

“When a parent hears the words ‘your child has cancer’, their world crumbles. We will ensure this donation is used to provide some happiness to families who need it.”

PASIC, which works closely with families, is always looking for volunteers and help with fundraising. Go to or email [email protected] for further information.

David Wilson Homes’ donation was made as part of its Community Fund scheme via The Barratt Foundation, which is run by its parent company, Barratt Developments.

John Reddington, managing director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, added: “It’s a privilege to donate £1,500 to the charity and we hope its support workers can continue to make such a wonderful difference.”
