Local football team scores donation from East Scotland

19 March 2024

East Scotland region has announced Longniddry Villa FC 2013s as one of their Community Champions – banking the club a bumper donation.

Longniddry Villa aims make grassroots football accessible to as many children as possible. They keep their costs affordable to provide opportunities for children to develop physically and mentally, forming life-long friendships in the process.

The £2,000 donation from our East Scotland team will go towards new kits for the club’s 2013 team, which is planning on participating in an upcoming football festival.

Team Villa received the £2,000 donation through our Community Champions initiative, which supports charities and good causes in the areas the company operates in. The programme has seen more than £350,000 donated across Scotland in the last five years.

Neil Parry, East Scotland region Managing Director, said:

“We are delighted to support Longniddry Villa with this donation and I hope it will go a long way to helping them with the cost of their new kits.

“At Persimmon, we are committed to leaving a positive lasting legacy in the areas where we operate and supporting clubs like Longniddry Villa – which play a crucial role in the local community – is a big part of that.”

Mark King, Longniddry Villa 2013’s head coach, said:

“Having come through a pandemic and experienced the cost-of-living crisis, the generosity and support from Persimmon Homes could not have come at a better time.

“On behalf of Team Villa, I’d like to thank Persimmon for supporting grassroots football and our local community.”
