Local groups call for public support to win £100,000
14 November 2021
Local groups across Britain are urgently seeking support to help them win a share of our £1million Building Futures prize pot – with a week to go until voting closes
We have shortlisted 96 good causes from across England, Wales and Scotland in categories targeting grassroots sports, health organisations and arts & education projects.
One initiative from each category will go on to win £100,000, decided on the highest number of public votes. As well as the £100,000 first prize, there will be a £50,000 second prize and a £20,000 third prize in each category, while a further 87 shortlisted projects will each receive £5,000.
Voting closes at midnight on November 19.
Building Futures is delivered through the Persimmon Charitable Foundation in partnership with Team GB, the British Olympic Association.
Anthony Vigor, Group Director of Policy and External Affairs for Persimmon Homes, said: “Building Futures aims to create lasting legacies in communities across the UK and we believe that each of our finalists would be able to make a huge difference with the £100,000 top prize.
“Your support could change the lives of hundreds of local people so we would urge you to get behind your chosen charity because there’s not long left to vote.”
Online voting runs until midnight on November 19. For more information visit www.persimmonhomes.com/building-futures/.
