Housebuilder support for health charity

19 January 2021

Persimmon Homes Anglia has pledged £1,000 to a leading health charity.

MND Association, which supports people living with motor neurone disease, will receive the funding thanks to Persimmon’s Community Champions initiative which supports charities and organisations in areas where the company is building.

The charity was nominated by Wymondham resident Denise Lambert, whose daughter Sadie was diagnosed with motor neurone disease earlier this year, aged just 40.

She said: “Currently there is no cure for this devastating disease, with around half of people losing their battle within a year.

“Within a few days of Sadie’s diagnosis, we set up a fundraising page and have already raised more than £48,000. ‘Team Lambert’ recently took part in a Mission 5,000 event, cycling 5,000 miles in five weeks to raise £22,000.

“Now we are planning a charity golf day for next May and a charity ball when the pandemic has passed. We are grateful to Persimmon Homes for their generous support.”

Persimmon Homes Anglia makes two donations of up to £1,000 every month. The online application form can be found at www.persimmonhomes.com/charity

John Eldridge, director in charge for Persimmon Anglia, added: “So many charities have suffered through the pandemic, with fundraising events and activities cancelled, so we are pleased to help this good cause which provides a range of practical support services to people living with MND and their families.”
