£1,000 donation is music to festival’s ears

09 May 2017

Persimmon Homes South Midlands is helping a music festival turn up the volume thanks to a £1,000 donation.

Kineton Music Festival have been gifted the cash injection from Persimmon Homes South Midlands as part of Persimmon Homes’ Community Champions scheme. Now in its fifth year, the festival, which is held at Kineton Sports and Social Club, welcomes around 1,500 music lovers from the local area. Festival organisers applied for funding via the Persimmon Community Champions initiative. It is a national programme where charities and groups can apply for funding up to the value of £1,000 to match money they have already raised themselves.

Clive Rickman, organiser of Kineton Musical Festival, said: “The festival is now in its fifth year and is getting bigger and better each time. It’s a great way to promote regional musical talent and encourage both schools and colleges to participate in the event. There is always a fun, family atmosphere at our festival which creates a strong sense of local identity and community spirit. It really does bring people together.”  As well as paying for headline artists and sound crew, the donation money will also be put towards security and medical staffing costs.

Carol Selway, head of sales at Persimmon Homes South Midlands, said: “We want to give something back to the local community and we know how popular Kineton Music Fesitval is with the local community. We’re extremely pleased to be supporting such a great event and we’re sure this year’s festival will be the best one to date.”
