A pre-school on wheels has been awarded a £1,000 funding boost thanks to Persimmon Homes Suffolk.
Persimmon Homes has selected Ipswich Community Playbus to receive the donation as part of its Building Futures scheme, which aims to help community groups working with under-18s.
Simon Wood, director in charge of Persimmon Homes Suffolk, said: “We are very proud that our Building Futures initiative allows us to provide more resources for cash-strapped local groups. The Ipswich Playbus is a prime example of a group working to improve the lives of its community.”
Ipswich Community Playbus is a not-for-profit charity for families with children under five years old. Originally launched in 2003, the bus currently runs eight free play sessions in a fully equipped and stimulating learning environment. Persimmon’s donation will help to support the running costs and provide arts and craft supplies. For more information visit www.ipswichplaybus.org.uk
Building Futures is being delivered through the Persimmon Charitable Foundation and is aimed at community projects for people aged under 18, targeting grassroots sports groups, charities dealing with physical and mental health issues or awareness, as well as community arts and education projects.
Monthly grants of £1,000 will be awarded across Persimmon’s 32 regional businesses to improve facilities and the delivery of vital grassroots community projects.
In addition to the £1,000 monthly awards, three initiatives will go on to win £100,000 each through a national award scheme voted on by the public. The overall winners will be named at a gala dinner for finalists in October.
In each sector – sport, education & arts, and health – as well as the £100,000 first prize, there will be a £50,000 second prize and a £20,000 third prize, while a further 87 shortlisted projects will each receive £5,000.
