Commenting, Persimmon’s Sales Director for West Wales, Sharon Bouhali, said:

“We’re delighted to have been able to help out Calsonic AFC in the latest tranche of our Community Champions donations.

“The club provides great opportunities to young people in the area and a focal point for families in the community, and this will, hopefully, also be true for the generations that will come to live at our nearby Awel y Mynydd and Parc Cerrig developments.

“We hope to see their teams go from strength to strength and wish them the best of luck for the future.”

Dean Williams of Calsonic AFC added:

“We’re grateful to Persimmon for their support as this donation will go a long way for the club.

“This will help the club with funding kits, training equipment, and expenses such as pitch rental, which allows us to maintain and expand our offering to young people across the town.”
