North Midlands gives £1,000 cash boost to Swadlincote community hub

20 March 2023

An organisation which provides meals for vulnerable people in Swadlincote and the surrounding areas has secured a donation from our North Midlands team.

Bus Park Community Hub and Cafe runs a hot meal delivery service throughout Swadlincote and the surrounding areas, delivering over 40 meals per day in the area. The funds, donated as part of our Community Champions initiative, will be used to alleviate the impact of the increased cost of living.

The Trustees at the Bus Park Community Hub and Café, said: “We are so grateful to Persimmon Homes and their kind donation of £1,000 via their Community Champions Fund. This kind donation will help to provide energy and resources to our meal delivery service – which has proven invaluable to vulnerable people in the community throughout the colder months.”

Nadine O’Dowd, Sales Director at North Midlands region, said: “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.”

“It’s an honour to be able to offer this support to Bus Park Community Hub and Cafe.”
