Funding support for Northamptonshire good causes

Funding support for Northamptonshire good causes

A school library and a community foodbank are the latest Northamptonshire good causes to benefit from Persimmon’s funding scheme.

Towcester Primary School and Weston Favell Centre Foodbank have each been selected to receive £1,000 from the Community Champions initiative, which supports grassroots organisations across England, Scotland and Wales.

Claire Dearsley, sales director for Persimmon Midlands, said: “Our Community Champions fund was set up to help projects that make a real difference to the lives of local people, and both of these good causes are certainly doing that.”

Weston Favell Centre Food Bank is a Trussell Trust affiliated project, supporting people in need across the eastern district of Northampton. The charity has seen demand for food parcels double due to the impact of Covid-19 and Persimmon’s donation will help to fund the essential running costs of the operation. For more information visit

The Friends of Towcester Primary School have been working to raise £30,000 towards a library building for the whole school. This important resource will contribute to the success of students at the rapidly-growing school, giving them the opportunity to develop a love of reading in a suitably welcoming environment.

Claire Dearsley added: “We make two donations of up to £1,000 every month through the Community Champions scheme. For groups working specifically with the under-18s we have recently launched our Building Futures initiative, which will share more than £1million amongst good causes across England, Scotland and Wales.”
