Cracking way to help needy children.

HOUSEBUILDER David Wilson Homes will be collecting Easter eggs at the sales centres of its 15 developments across the North West ahead of Easter weekend, including Claremont Gardens at St John's Place in Liverpool.

The eggs will be donated to Children's Adventure Farm Trust (Caft) which works tirelessly to help terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children in the North West.

Graham Swann, managing director at David Wilson Homes North West, says: "Caft is a wonderful charity and we are delighted to be able to continue offering them our support.

"Following the roaring success of last year's Teddy Bear Amnesty, where our sales centres were inundated with generous donations of cuddly creatures, we decided to encourage local people to donate eggs this Easter.

"Many local people, children and adults alike, will be lucky enough to receive more than one Easter egg this year and the children at Caft will be very grateful for these contributions."

Alistair Laing, charity relationship manager at Caft, adds: At Caft we rely on the assistance of the local community, so we would like to thank David Wilson Homes North West for organising the egg amnesty and thanks in advance to anyone who makes a donation for their kind support."

Caft's Easter Egg Amnesty is part of the continued support that the Our Space, Your Place initiative by David Wilson Homes North West has provided for the cause since its launch in November 2010.

Our Space, Your Place offers funding, resources and assistance to community groups in the region.

The only condition is that the support is used for something that will genuinely enhance or improve a service, facility or the environment within their local area.

Since its launch, Our Space, Your Place has offered its support to more than 30 organisations, charities, schools and volunteer projects.

The initiative has given more than pounds 12,000 to the groups and members of the office and sites teams have donated 200 hours of their time to help out.

Fundraising events organised by the team have generated a further pounds 10,000 for local charities.
