'Grand' success for wartime weekend

17 July 2018

A popular annual event is set to benefit from a grand donation thanks to a Persimmon Homes Lancashire.

Lytham 1940s Wartime Weekend has been awarded £1,000 as part of the Persimmon Homes Lancashire Community Champions scheme.

The national match-funding programme seeks to support groups and charities working to improve the quality of life or environment for local people.

Diane Finch, sales and marketing director for Persimmon Homes Lancashire said: “We know how popular the Lytham 1940’s Wartime Weekend is within the region, and therefore we’re extremely proud to be giving back to the local community as well as supporting such a great event.”

The Lytham 1940s Wartime Weekend is an annual free-to-attend family event in support of military charities and attracts more than 40,000 visitors from all over the country. The two-day event this year takes place at Lytham Green on the 18th and 19th August and will include battle re-enactments, military vehicles and entertainment as well as trade stands.

The match funding donation from Persimmon Homes will help towards the running costs.

Community groups, charities and good causes across the county have benefitted 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.

Persimmon Homes Lancashire operates new homes developments throughout Lancashire and Cumbria.
