Builder's raise £2,000 for Air Ambulance Trust

18 July 2013

Persimmon Homes South West is set to give one local charity a welcome fundraising boost having raised over £2,000.

The housebuilder and its employees managed to raise £2,156 by holding several fundraising activities throughout 2012 for their chosen charity the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust.

Tom Matthews, fundraising events officer at the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, said: ““It’s fantastic that Persimmon Homes South West has raised such a significant amount.  Being independent of Government and National Lottery funding, events just like this go a long way in raising the £2million we need to run this vital operation.

“We are so grateful for their continued commitment and loyalty to our cause, and so impressed with the ingenuity, enthusiasm and generosity of their fundraising activities.”

Michelle Salter, field sales manager at Persimmon Homes South West, added: “We are so pleased that our fundraising activities over the past year have raised awareness and a significant amount or money for the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust.

“Everyone at Persimmon Homes works tremendously hard throughout the year to raise money for our nominated charities.  The Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust is an excellent cause and one we are extremely proud to be associated with.”

In addition to the money presented to the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust, Persimmon Homes South West has also donated £2,156 to both the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance Trust and the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.
