Persimmon Homes supports Northamptonshire children's projects

12 July 2018

Two Northamptonshire organisations working to improve the lives of local children are set for a £1,000 cash boost thanks to Persimmon Homes.

Friends of Stoke Bruerne School in Towcester and Northampton Short Breaks are the latest local recipients of Persimmon Homes Community Champions donations.

The national match-funding scheme seeks to support groups and charities working to improve the quality of life or environment across the region.

Claire Dearsley, head of sales at Persimmon Homes Midlands, said: “The Community Champions scheme enables us to help a wide range of organisations, and we are always pleased when the funding is focused on young people in the neighbourhoods where we are building.”

Friends of Stoke Bruerne School are fundraising to have an all-weather surface installed to allow children to play outside all year round and enhance PE lessons. The small rural school has been running summer fetes, film nights and discos and Persimmon’s match-funding will offer a much-needed boost to the total.

The school is a short distance from Persimmon’s major development at The Furlongs, Towcester.

Northampton Short Breaks is a youth club service for children and young people with disabilities and complex health needs. The club gives parents and carers an important break as well as offering fun and educational experiences for the young people. For more information visit www.actionforchildren.org.uk

Community groups, charities and good causes across the country have benefited thanks to the donations from Persimmon Homes. Organisations can apply for funding by completing a simple online form at www.persimmonhomes.com/charity

The scheme invites local groups and charities to bid for cash from a £750,000 national fund, with two donations of up to £1,000 being made locally each month.
