Local football club receives early Christmas present

22 December 2023

Red Row Raptors Football Club is celebrating after successfully applying for funding to purchase larger goals for its youth team.

The club based in Morpeth has been awarded a £500 donation from Persimmon after applying to the our Employee Charity Panel.

The donation will be used to purchase larger goals as the football club’s U10s progress to U11s at the end of the season.

Mark Shepherd, Chief Quantity Surveyor, Persimmon North East, who applied on behalf of Red Row Raptors FC, said:

“We are over the moon to have been awarded funding through Persimmon’s Employee Charity Panel.

“Being a relatively new club, donations allow the club to continue and expand without passing the cost onto parents, which is extremely important to the club in the current climate.”
