Scout Group nets £1,000 grant

12 July 2016

Persimmon Homes Severn Valley has donated £1,000 to the Stroud Valley Scout Group as the Persimmon Homes announces its latest round of Community Champions.

The group, which meets on Wednesday and Thursday evenings at the Scouting Centre in Chapel Street, provides activities for boys and girls aged 6 to 14-years-old.

The money will be used to support a feasibility and community engagement programme to help them build a new community centre on land owned and used by the Scout Group.

John Jones, Acting Group Scout Leader, said their existing building was used by many different groups and organisations, but now a more modern and up-to-date facility was needed.

“The current building is in a poor state, so we will use this donation to support funds we have already obtained to explore a range of ideas. These ideas will then be put forward for consultation with the wider community and our stakeholders.”

Nicola Hill, sales and marketing director for Persimmon Homes Severn Valley, said: “We are delighted to offer our full support to the Stroud Valley Scout Group as so many members of the local community benefit from what they have to offer.

“I’m pleased that the £1,000 donated can kick-start the consultation. Of course it was a difficult decision to select the Scout Group with such a high standard of applications, but I would advise those people who have missed out this time – even if they have won previously – to apply again.”

Persimmon Homes’ Community Champions scheme is a national programme where charities, groups and individuals can apply for funding up to the value of £1,000 to match money they have already raised themselves.
