Boost for school thanks to Persimmon Homes

29 May 2015

A Stockport primary school has become one of the first organisations to be given a cash boost by a regional builder as part of its year-long initiative to support local communities.

Alexandra Park Primary School received a cash boost from Persimmon Homes North West as part of the builder’s Community Champions project. The scheme will see a pot of £24,000 donated to local groups and charities over the next 12 months throughout the region.

Two groups will now be chosen every month to receive a match-funding donation and organisations are being encouraged to apply by completing an online form at www.persimmonhomes.com/charity.

This month, a donations was also made to Shavington High School, in Crewe.

Ashley Cahill, spokesman for Alexandra Park which received £1,000, said: “We are working with a number of universities inspiring children to become interested in geology and earth science. We have limited resources to allow children in the area to experience the wonders of the Earth for themselves and so the money will be a real help and we cannot thank Persimmon enough.”

Neil Follows, managing director of Persimmon Homes North West, said the community initiative was a way of supporting people across every city, town and village where the company works. He added: “We are very pleased to hand over our first donation to a school where the pupils will really feel the benefit.”

The Persimmon Community Champions initiative 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. Nationwide the company will donate a total of £750,000.

Persimmon Homes North West has developments across Cheshire, Flintshire, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside and Staffordshire.
