Two senior staff members at Barratt David Wilson Homes completed a tandem skydive last week in support of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). Together, Natalie Perry (Sales and Marketing Director) and Kirsty Merrington (Site Manager) raised over £1,600 for the charity, which has been chosen as Barratt David Wilson Kent’s Charity of the Year 2021.

The pair took part in a tandem skydive on Wednesday 29th September at Headcorn, Kent to raise funds for the charity. Their total boosts the £12,500 already raised by the housebuilder, whose head office is based in Sundridge, Kent.

Fundraising is set to continue until the end of the year, with donations set to help the NSPCC’s essential Childline service, which provides free, confidential advice and support from trained counsellors to concerned adults and carers, alongside a dedicated service for children and young people.

Francesca Picciuto, NSPCC Corporate Partnerships Manager for London and the South East, said: “Donations are incredibly important for our organisation as they allow us to continue providing our services and support those most vulnerable in our society. We would like to congratulate Kirsty and Natalie on their skydive and thank them for choosing to support our work with their fundraising.”

Natalie Perry, Sales and Marketing Director of Barratt David Wilson Kent, adds: “Kirsty and I are really proud to have taken part in this skydive and we would like to thank everyone who has sponsored us. The charity is very important to us here at Barratt David Wilson Kent, and we are pleased that the money raised will help the NSPCC continue to support millions of children and young people across the UK.”

The final donation total raised by Barratt David Wilson Kent will be revealed at the end of the year.
