Read all about it! Persimmon donates books to Chichester school

06 October 2011

Kingsham Primary School’s keen readers are sure to turn into fully-fledged book worms thanks to a kind-hearted donation from a local company.

To mark Children’s Book Week - an annual celebration of reading for pleasure for children of primary school age - staff from Persimmon Homes South Coast paid pupils a surprise visit to donate £100 to cover the cost of new books for their school library.

Peter Fleming, headteacher at Kingsham Primary School, said: “The offer of funding towards our library is a lovely gesture and we are extremely grateful for Persimmon’s ongoing support of the school.”

Pam Flynn, sales adviser at The Hawthorns, a new housing development situated near Kingsham Primary School in Chichester, added: “We were extremely keen to get involved in Children’s Book Week and wanted to take a fun approach towards enhancing the literacy skills of local children.”

Persimmon Homes takes its role in the community extremely seriously and has forged a close working relationship with Kingsham Primary School over the past few months, contributing funds towards a new shed for the School’s ‘Green Gang’ along with a recent donation of £250 for the PE department.
