Leicestershire housebuilder raises over £60,000 for local hospital

Davidsons, the Leicestershire-based housebuilder, has held a very successful awards evening which raised much-needed funds for a Leicester-based hospital.

The builder, based in Ibstock, held an event to recognise the ‘Best of Davidsons’ – inviting its staff, suppliers, subcontractors and consultants to celebrate the award winners whilst raising money for Glenfield Hospital.

The awards event last year raised over £50,000 and this year’s event, held at Athena in Leicester topped that with more than £60,000 being raised for Glenfield Hospital’s Cardiology Unit.

During the evening the guests were entertained by Jon Culshaw – the impressionist, comedian and actor, and Dr Ravi Pathmanathan, Consultant Cardiologist from Glenfield Cardiology Unit, explained how the money raised from the evening will be used to buy vital equipment for the Cardiology Ward.

Stephanie King, Sales Director for Davidsons Homes, says: “The event has far exceeded our expectations in the two years we have been hosting it.

“We are delighted that we can use the opportunity to recognise our fantastic staff and suppliers while raising money for a very worthwhile cause.

“We are extremely grateful to everyone that kindly attended and donated towards the event.

She added: “The evening was a huge success in every way that we could have hoped for and we look forward to doing it all again next year.

“We would also like to emphasise that this magnificent fundraising effort wouldn’t have been possible without our many excellent suppliers, sub-contractors and consultants, as well as the support of the David Wilson Foundation.”
