Lancashire causes scoop community cash

21 August 2018

Two worthy Lancashire causes are celebrating after scooping community funding from Persimmon Homes.

Woodlands Animal Sanctuary and St Anne’s International Kite Festival have each been awarded £1,000 from the Persimmon Homes Community Champions fund.

The national match-funding scheme seeks to support groups and charities working to improve the quality of life or environment across the region.

Diane Finch, sales and marketing director at Persimmon Homes Lancashire, said: “Both of these groups offer a valuable service to local people – through the care of injured wildlife or providing an enjoyable family day out. It is our absolute pleasure to support them.”

Woodlands Animal Sanctuary, based at Holmeswood, cares for up to 350 sick, injured or abandoned animals – from hedgehogs to horses. The donation from Persimmon Homes will help towards rising vets’ bills as the sanctuary looks after increasing numbers. To find out more visit www.woodlandsanimalsanctuary.org.uk

The community organised St Anne’s International Kite Festival is a successful annual event, attracting up to 50,000 visitors to the town’s beach. Taking place over the weekend of 1-2 September, the programme also includes an illuminated night fly and firework display on Friday 31st August from 7-9.30pm. Further details can be found at www.stanneskitefestival.co.uk

Community groups, charities and good causes across the country have benefited 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 has new homes developments across Lancashire and Cumbria.
