The housebuilder donated the money from its community fund, which provides support to worth causes in the region.

Sally said: “We are absolutely thrilled. We are supporting children and young people who have been diagnosed with cancer right across the South coast, and this incredible donation will help us make life a little easier for them and their families. A huge thank you from everyone here.”

Tammy Bishop, Barratt and David Wilson Homes Sales Director, Southampton Division, said: “We are committed to supporting organisations in the communities in which we are building, and we know what a fantastic job Abby’s Heroes is doing for local people. To be able to make this donation is a real pleasure.”
