Persimmon Homes names air ambulance as charity of the year

25 November 2015

Persimmon Homes West Wales have announced Wales Air Ambulance as its charity of the year for 2015/2016.

The leading property company chose the cause having recently raised more than £3,000 for the RNLI last year.

Persimmon Homes will now set about a number of fundraising events to aid the air ambulance which requires £6 million to run each year.

Typically each mission costs £1,500 and the services responds to roughly 2,000 missions each year.

Sharon Robinson, sales director at Persimmon Homes West Wales, said: “We are delighted to announce Wales Air Ambulance as our charity of the year.

They provide a vital service across the country and we will be doing all we can raise money to help the cause.

The Persimmon Homes team is already making arrangements for a number of fundraising events and we look forward to working hard to raise money for Wales Air Ambulance.”

Wales Air Ambulance fundraising manager Mark Stevens added: “We’re extremely grateful to the Persimmon Homes West Wales region for choosing us to be their charity of the year – it sounds like they have a great programme of events planned and we’re very much looking forward to seeing their fundraising efforts.

“As a charity we rely entirely on donations from the public and businesses like Persimmon to keep our helicopters in the air. We need to raise over £6 million every year, with each mission costing around £1,500.

This is a really exciting time to be working with the Persimmon Homes team. We’re campaigning to raise £500,000 to help build a new airbase for our South Wales helicopter, and their support will literally be going into the bricks and mortar of our new home.”

Persimmon Homes has developments at The Fairways in Milford Haven, Maes y Parc in Cross Hands and Kingsbridge Court in Gorseinon.
