David commented:

“We are extremely grateful to David Wilson Homes for their donation. Thornberry Animal Sanctuary relies heavily on funding from local businesses and people to enable us to give animals in need the best possible care. The donation is particularly special as we celebrate our 30th birthday this year – we look forward to the next 30 years of helping to rehome animals in the area. Barry thoroughly enjoyed his trip to Gateford Park and we are honoured that we were asked to open the Show Homes which look brilliant!”

Katy said:

“It is very important to us that we support the local communities near our developments, so we are very proud to have donated to such a worthy cause. We were delighted to have such special guests visit to open the new Show Homes, they seemed to have lots of fun too! We’re looking forward to welcoming more animals to the development as families settle in and bring their own four-legged friends or add to their households. Now the Show Homes are officially open people can visit and see what life at Gateford Park is like.”
