Bee gets on her bike for charity

11 May 2013

Persimmon South East region is hoping to raise vital funds for children and young people needing hospice care in their own home after selecting chYps as its regional charity for the year

Staff from the regional team, based at Maidstone and oeprating across East Sussex, Kent, Surrey and West Sussex, will hold fundraising activities throughout the year to help support the charity’s work.

Jo Richards, head of sales and marketing for Persimmon Homes South East, said: “Each year we choose a charity to benefit from our corporate fundraising so this year all our efforts will be focused on supporting the very important work of chYps.

“This continues a long association with chYps that was forged by Hillreed Homes, which is now part of the Persimmon group.”

Persimmon Homes has pledged to match the first £3,000 raised by its staff, enabling the team – based at regional headquarters in Maidstone – to kickstart their fundraising campaign.

First to take on the challenge is interior designer Bee Styche, who is tackling a sponsored cycle ride from London to Brussels – via Amsterdam – later this month.

Bee said: “The Three Cities Ride is the challenge of a lifetime for me. I am hoping to raise as much money as possible for chYps, who offer an amazing service to children and young people with life-limiting and life threatening conditions.

“The charity makes sure they receive full hospice car in their own home, so they can stay close to family at a very difficult time.

“Training for the ride has been intense, but I am hoping my commitment and determination will help chYps and the families the charity supports.”
