A South Wales charity which offers care and support to children with cancer has benefitted from a donation from a local housebuilder.
Kids Cancer Charity, which is based in Swansea and has a fundraising office in Cardiff, received a cheque of £550 from Bellway Wales, which is building new homes at St Lythans Park, in Culverhouse Cross.
The money donated will go towards sending a child and their family to one of the charity’s four holiday homes located on the Welsh coast. These breaks give families a chance to get away from the pressures of hospital and treatment.
Rosemarie Davies, appeals officer at Kids Cancer Charity, said: “Our charity runs solely on donations, so we are extremely grateful to receive this support from Bellway.
“A donation of £550 will give a family the chance to have a short break away in one of our holiday homes and ensures they get to spend some quality time together.
“When a child is diagnosed with cancer it affects the whole family, but with kind gestures such as this one, we are able to offer support and care to help them through a difficult time.”
Billie Oaten, Sales Director for Bellway Wales, said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to support Kids Cancer Charity and help them to continue their fantastic work in the community.
“As a housebuilder, we are committed to helping charities within the areas in which we build new homes.”
Kids Cancer Charity, which has been running since 1989, is currently helping more than 1,900 children and families through counselling, therapy, family support and short breaks.
