Midlands team raises £12,900 for KidsAid

12 February 2024

A children’s charity has received a cash boost of over £12,900 over the course of 2023, thanks to charity events held throughout the year by our Midlands team.

Members of the Northampton-based team as well as subcontractors and suppliers took part in a number of events throughout the year, including dress down Fridays, bake sales, raffles and a golf day.

KidsAid is a Northampton-based charity providing therapeutic support for children and young people who have suffered any form of trauma. The team focuses on prevention, healing and empowerment for children and families affected by abuse, family breakdown, illness, and bereavement.

A spokesperson for KidsAid said: “Thank you for your generosity and for being an essential part of our mission. Your support is going to make a profound difference to the lives of children and families across Northamptonshire, thank you again from the bottom of our hearts.”

Zac Hurst, Managing Director at Midlands region, said: “What we do is about so much more than building quality homes; it’s also about supporting the communities in which we build in a number of ways.

“At Persimmon, we encourage our team to raise funds for causes close to their hearts and it’s great to know that our fundraising efforts throughout the year have had a positive impact on KidsAid.”
