Sponsoring local college’s "Above and Beyond" award

26 May 2023

Last week, we had the privilege of sponsoring an award at Preston College’s Annual Awards Ceremony.

It was a remarkable evening filled with inspiration, talent, and celebration of outstanding achievements.

As a proud supporter of education and community development, we sponsored the "Above and Beyond" award to recognise the apprentice who has gone that extra mile within their apprenticeship.

In 2022 Persimmon was named one of the country’s Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers with over 700 apprentices and trainees. Locally, we currently have 38 apprentices in Lancashire and Cumbria working on sites including in Preston, Bamber Bridge and Lancaster, with 10 of our apprentices studying at Preston College.  

Our sponsorship of this award not only demonstrates dedication to corporate social responsibility but also to pursue their dreams and make a positive impact on society.

By supporting initiatives like the Preston College Annual Awards Ceremony, we aim to inspire the next generation and contribute to the overall development of our communities and highlights our genuine interest in empowering young individuals.

Ian McDonald, Regional Apprentice Manager and Anthony Mansfield, Managing Director Persimmon Lancashire, attended the awards to extend our congratulations to all the winners and nominees across different categories.
