Nottingham team helps to refresh green spaces at Calverton Infant School

09 March 2023

A primary school in Calverton has received a cash boost to rejuvenate its outdoor spaces, thanks to our Nottingham team.

Manor Park Infant School PTA, Friends of Manor Park, received a £1,000 donation from us as part of our Community Champions initiative. The funds will be used to purchase new outdoor resources for the school, allowing pupils to make the most of the outdoors as well as develop their interpersonal skills, physical activity and enhance their playtime.

Tina Evans at Friends of Manor Park PTA said: ““We’re absolutely delighted by this kind donation from Persimmon Homes. Our goal has always been to create a vibrant outdoor space which provides our pupils with lots of learning opportunities including physical development, social skills, and well-being – as well as allowing them to have lots of fun.

 “The money that Persimmon has kindly gifted us has gone towards new resources in 2023, and we couldn’t be more grateful.”

Tom Baskett, Sales Director at Persimmon Homes Nottingham, said: “We’re delighted to show our support to Friends of Manor Park PTA. 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 schools and community groups to boost their ongoing initiatives or contribute to causes that mean a lot to them.”
