Midlands region gives £500 cash boost to Towcester Play and Activity Day

05 June 2023

An annual youth day in Towcester has received a cash boost for this year’s event, thanks to our Midlands region.

Towcester Play and Activity Day received a £500 donation from Midlands, who are building new homes at the nearby Towcester Grange community.

Run by South Northants Youth Engagement, and in its second year, Towcester Play and Activity Day gives young people in the town the opportunity to attend a day of free fun as well as giving families a chance to connect and have an opportunity for children to play in a safe environment. Some activities this year included junk modelling, go karts, sumo suits and giant Jenga. Our donation has helped to keep the event free for attendees.

Amelia Spalding, at South Northants Youth Engagement said: “We’re absolutely delighted by this kind donation from Persimmon Homes. Our goal has always been to host a day of fun for children in the area – with no cost associated to them and their families, and the money that Persimmon has kindly gifted us will help us to continue our work within Towcester.”

Claire Dearsley, Sales Director at our Midlands region, said: “We’re proud to show our support to Towcester Play and Community Day. What we do is about much more than just building homes, it’s about leaving a lasting positive legacy in the communities that we build in. We’re always delighted to lend a hand to local community groups to boost their ongoing initiatives or contribute to causes that mean a lot to them.”
