Bringing colour to local Rainbows Group

06 December 2022

A Rainbows group in South Warwickshire has received a cash boost to fund Christmas activities, thanks to our South Midlands region.

1st Shottery Rainbows, who are based at the Bishopton Community Centre received a £1,000 donation from us as part of our Community Champions initiative. The funds will be used to fund a forthcoming theatre outing and basic equipment for craft activities. The donation was marked with a cheque presentation, attended by Amanda Rogers, Sales Director at Persimmon Homes South Midlands.

Evie Hodgson, Group Leader at 1st Shottery Rainbows commented "we’re absolutely delighted by this kind donation from Persimmon Homes. Our goal has always been to create a group where our girls can socialise and thrive. During Covid many activities were curtailed and more recently it has become difficult to raise funds to provide the group with the materials we need to run fun, interactive sessions. This funding is going to make all the difference to us.”

Amanda Rogers, Sales Director of Persimmon Homes South Midlands, said “what we do is about much more than just building homes, it’s about leaving a lasting positive legacy in the communities that we build in. We’re always delighted to lend a hand to local schools and community groups to boost their ongoing initiatives or contribute to causes that mean a lot to them. It’s great to see 1st Shottery Rainbows put the donation to good use and only too pleased that we could help support their forthcoming theatre outing.”
