We are delighted to announce that the inaugural winner of the Persimmon Homes Healthy Communities scheme is Heart of England Boxing Club. The Leicestershire club that each week helps young people overcome issues such as ADHD, autism, anti-social behaviour and bullying, has come out top in a public vote and received a cheque for £200,000. The two runners up, each receiving a cheque for £50,000, are Park Wrekin Gymnastics in Shropshire, and SportsAble in Maidenhead.
Congratulations also go to our regional finalists - all of them winners in their own right.
