Housebuilder’s biggest challenge yet to raise funds for children’s hospice


A TEAM from Warrington-based housebuilder David Wilson Homes North West are taking on their biggest challenge yet to raise funds for Claire House Children’s Hospice.

The team of five from the company’s Birchwood office, including managing director Claire Jarvis, are preparing to do a 11,000-foot skydive to raise £5,000 for the children’s charity.
Gavin Powell, Ryan Godliman, Julian Digby and Kirsty Smith make up the rest of the team.
Claire House Children’s Hospice opened in December 1998 with a mission to help seriously and terminally ill children live as full and as happy a life as they possibly can.
The hospice now supports more than 400 families.
David Wilson Homes made Claire House its charity of choice in 2022 and since then, the housebuilder has raised over £120,000.
Claire Jarvis said: “As a parent, it must be devastating to hear the news that your child is seriously ill and may not live to be an adult. For our team to jump out of a plane is easy compared to the bravery needed by the children and families who are facing really difficult times. We are proud to continue to support Claire House
Children’s Hospice so they can continue to make memories.”

Harry Boshell from Claire House Children Hospice said: “David Wilson Homes continue to go above and beyond with their support for our children and families. We’ve met so many of their staff in the last year at fundraising events and volunteering days and everyone is so passionate about supporting our families. We’re look forward to welcoming this brave team back on the ground!”
The skydive will take place on Saturday June 22 at Tilstock Freefall Club, Tilstock Airfield in Whitchurch.
