Disabled access for Pershore scout hut

09 May 2017

A Pershore scout group that is looking to raise money for a disabled access ramp at its premises at Pershore College has been handed a cash donation from a Persimmon Homes South Midlands.

1st Pershore Scout Group has been named as Persimmon Homes South Midlands’ latest Community Champion, being awarded a £1,000 donation through the housebuilder’s Community Champions scheme. Community Champions began in March 2015 and gives away up to £1,000 to two charities each month. The Scout group has recently built a new hut in Pershore, having already raised over £6,000 to get the disabled access ramp built to specification. Persimmon’s donation will mean that the group are able to buy and fit the ramp.

Hayley Tomkins from Pershore Scout Group, said: “Persimmon’s generous donation is sure to help us out immensely as we are going to purchase our new disabled access ramp. The scout hut has gone from strength to strength in recent times and we’re so pleased that this can continue. We have a few disabled children and parent helpers on our waiting list that would like to attend our groups and we cannot get them in the building at the moment, so this kind donation is really helpful.”

Carol Selway, head of sales for Persimmon Homes South Midlands, said: “1st Pershore Scout Group is a social hub for young people in the region and we’re so thrilled to be able to help out with their new premises. The group has already worked hard to raise a significant amount for the disabled access ramp and we’re pleased to be able to help complete their fundraising. Our scheme gives charities and community groups from across Worcestershire the chance to apply for up to £1,000 of funding. It has been a hugely successful initiative which has allowed us to support more than 20 good causes already."

Applications for funding can be made quickly and easily by visiting Persimmon Community Champions.
