Community projects receive vital funding
02 August 2018
Two valuable community projects are set to receive £1,000 each from Persimmon Homes Anglia.
Hethersett VC Junior School and the annual Worstead Festival have each been selected by Persimmon Homes Anglia for the latest round of Community Champions donations.
The national match-funding scheme seeks to support groups and charities working to improve the quality of life or environment across the region.
Andrew Fuller, managing director at Persimmon Homes Anglia, added; “Local schools and village events help to make up the fabric of our wonderful rural community, so we are delighted this month to support two such good causes.”
Hethersett VC Junior School is set to convert into a primary school to accommodate the growing village population, and Persimmon’s donation will help towards much-needed education and play resources for the students, to ensure the classroom is a vibrant place for learning.
The annual Worstead Festival – this year taking place on the 28th and 29th July – raises money for a wide range of local groups and projects. Run completely by volunteers, the festival offers two days of entertainment, live music, local food and crafts. For more information visit www.worsteadfestival.org
Community groups, charities and good causes across the country have benefited thanks to the donations from Persimmon Homes. Organisations can apply for funding by completing a simple online form at www.persimmonhomes.com/charity
The scheme invites local groups and charities to bid for cash from a £750,000 national fund, with two donations of up to £1,000 being made locally each month.
