Seven Nottinghamshire charities receive festive donations

17 December 2020

Seven Nottinghamshire charities have received an early Christmas present from a local housebuilder.

Sherwood Forest Foodbank, Homestart Mansfield, Nottinghamshire Independent Domestic Abuse Service, Mansfield Samaritans, Helping Kids Achieve and Blidworth Welfare Football Club each received £500.

In addition, Leon’s Legacy, a charity aiming to put life-saving defibrillators in schools across the country which was launched following the tragic death of Leon Smith, a lunchtime supervisor, who had a heart attack at Nottingham school, was also presented with a £500 donation.

Three further organisations received a festive £500 donation, including Derbyshire’s The Ben Parker Trust Fund and national charities Help 4 Homeless Veterans and Niemann-Pick UK (NPUK).   

With the current pandemic limiting charities’ traditional fundraising activities, the Mansfield-based housebuilder wanted to bring some extra festive cheer to worthy causes that work tirelessly to support others.

Neil Follows, managing director of Persimmon Homes Nottingham, said: “Our popular Community Champions scheme, where we give up to £1,000 each month to two grassroots groups and charities in areas we are building, goes some way to support these hard working, and selfless, groups.

“After such a difficult year, for so many, we felt a festive donation was also needed. My team selected the beneficiaries and I feel they choose well.

“May I remind other such groups to apply to our match-funding Community Champions scheme so we can continue to support as many local good causes as we can.”
