The Donna Louise is getting on board with James Du Pavey

24 April 2017

We are delighted to announce the launch of an exciting new partnership between The Donna Louise and James Du Pavey Estate Agents.

This brand new initiative will give new homeowners from today, selling their houses with James Du Pavey, the opportunity to choose an exclusive Donna Louise sale board featuring a design created by one of the children who use the Trentham-based Hospice.

The new boards will include a painting called "Rainbow of Love" created by nine year old Chelsey Kirkham whose brother spends time at The Donna Louise. Chelsey explained, "I love rainbows and hearts. This picture is for my brother - he comes to The Donna Louise and sometimes he's in hospital. He's my hero! I love my family, they are my rainbow and home is where my heart is."

The exciting initiative will see each customer choosing the exclusive Donna Louise sale board pledging to donate £50 to the hospice when their house sale completes. James Du Pavey will then match fund each customer's donation with a further £50.

James Du Pavey explained....
"When we first approached The Donna Louise with the aim of supporting this amazing charity we never expected to come up with something so exciting that engages both the children and their families who use the hospice. It's a great way for children, young adults and siblings who stay there to express their emotions and see their artwork on our sale boards across Staffordshire and Cheshire."

"Our teams are all set to try and promote the initiative to new homeowners from today who are selling their properties, but we want to stress there is no obligation. We are incredibly grateful if you do sign up and look forward to helping to raise funds for The Donna Louise."

Melanie Williams, head of high value relationships at The Donna Louise, explained....
"We're really excited about this unique opportunity and we're looking forward to building our relationship with James and his team."

"Art therapy is an important service offered to all families who spend time at The Donna Louise. It's a way for the children, young adults, siblings and parents to express their feelings, with our counsellor, through a creative channel and many of them have created some breath-taking pieces."

"To see Chelsey's painting incorporated on the James Du Pavey sale boards is really exciting and I can't wait to see them popping up outside homes across the county."

The exclusive Donna Louise sale boards will be offered to all new homeowners selling their homes with James Du Pavey from today.
