Putney social entrepreneur Charlotte Grobien, director of Give It Away Ltd, has donated an eye-watering £10,000 for the NSPCCs service, Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond.

Charlotte Grobien, whose charity donations are entirely funded by the proceeds of property she develops, presented the cheque on Friday to the NSPCC centre in Hounslow, on Friday bringing her closer to her £1m giveaway milestone.

Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond is a programme aimed at new parents before and after birth to help the most vulnerable mums and dads cope with having a baby and set a pattern of good parenting for life.

And this is the latest of a series of giveaways from the property guru, who’s mission in life is to help projects who support children and young people in need and who receive no Government funding.

Charlotte decided to embark on her philanthropic project after adding an extra floor to her own house in Putney in 2006 and then went on to buy, build and sell 6 houses since 2006 as well as buying and renting out 2 flats in that time. This summer she sold three cottages in Woking leaving her with a profit of £202,000.

This latest boost brings the total amount of money to date that Charlotte has awarded to projects to a staggering £961,000 and she aims to reach the £1m milestone in the New Year.

These include in October:

£60,000 to Small Steps a pre-school for severely disabled children

£30,000 to React a charity that improves the quality of life for children with life limiting illnesses living in financially disadvantaged families

£36,000 to Whizz-kidz to provide customised mobility equipment for disabled children to give them the freedom to live their lives to the full.

On her latest donation Charlotte Grobien says:
“I am delighted to be able to help the NSPCC support young women and their families in this way. Research suggests that children thrive in a happy home environment and it’s wonderful to be able to give these little people a good start in life.”
