Persimmon Homes Anglia pledges support to charity

07 April 2016

Persimmon Homes Anglia is embarking on a fundraising drive to help a leading cancer support charity.

Macmillan Cancer Support has been selected as the regional business’ 2016 nominated charity, and will be the focus of the company’s employee events all year.

The charity helps to improve the lives of those affected by cancer by providing practical, medical and emotional support as well as pushing for better cancer care.

Andrew Fuller, managing director of Persimmon Homes Anglia, said: “There are more than two million people living with cancer in the UK so funding is vital to help Macmillan continue to provide its services to help those affected by the disease across Norfolk and Suffolk.”

“We have pledged to make Macmillan the focus of our corporate and employee fundraising throughout 2016, and the first activity planned will see our architects, Matt Wright and Jasmine Mountford, competing in the Bungay Half Marathon in April.”

“Everyone here greatly admires Macmillan’s work and our staff are keen to get involved in the fundraising efforts so I hope we can raise thousands of pounds.”

Staff at Persimmon Homes are now drawing up a fundraising calendar to raise as much money as possible for the charity.

Last year, Persimmon Homes donated more than £10,000 to East Anglian Air Ambulance, a charity that offers a helicopter emergency medical service across Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire.
