Gala day organisers celebrate funding boost

11 June 2024

Monkton Gala Day

The Monkton Gala Day received a cash boost from Persimmon West Scotland.

Persimmon West Scotland supported this year’s Monkton Gala Day in Ayrshire with a £1,000 donation, as part of our Community Champions initiative.

The Gala Day took place on Saturday 8 June and was organised by the Monkton Community Council, with the aim of bringing the people of the village together.

This year’s event was bigger and better than ever, with a variety of fun filled activities taking place – from face painting to ninja assault courses. 

The group received the £1,000 donation through our Community Champions initiative, which supports charities and good causes in the areas that we operate in.

Chris Logan, Managing Director of Persimmon West Scotland, said:

“We were delighted to support this year’s Monkton Gala Day with a donation.

“Our Community Champions initiative is aimed at supporting groups that make a real difference in the areas we operate in, and the Monkton Gala Day does a great job of bringing the local community together.”

Catherine Robertson, Monkton Gala Day Organiser, said:

“On behalf of Monkton Gala Group, I was delighted to accept this donation from Persimmon West Scotland, which helped to fund the 2024 Gala Day and create a fantastic day full of fun and activities.”
