Swansea wellbeing group scores exercise equipment donation

05 November 2021

A Swansea group which provides free wellbeing sessions for young people with additional learning needs and disabilities has received a financial boost from us.

CanDo Connect CIC, based on Princess Way, is celebrating after bagging £1,000 from our West Wales business.

The money comes as part of our Community Champions scheme. Each and every month we donate up to £64,000 to good causes across the UK.

The cash will be used to buy new equipment for the sessions.

Samantha Nicholson, of CanDo Connect CIC, said: “This donation is fantastic news for us. We are extremely grateful to Persimmon Homes for their generosity.

“We are raising money for buy new exercise equipment such as a new sound system, exercise balls, exercise mats, pilates balls and agility ladders so we can provide a range of activities to meet the needs of all our users.

“We also want to extend the number of activities available to children and teens during holidays, when families are isolated due to the lack of opportunities.

“It’s brilliant to see Persimmon supporting local communities like this.”

Sharon Bouhali, sales director at Persimmon Homes West Wales, said: “We are delighted to be able to support CanDo Connect CIC.

“It’s really tough for parents of young people, particularly those with additional learning needs or disabilities. Groups like this make the world of difference by providing structured sessions which are really beneficial for all involved.”

We have recently launched Llys Ystrad our new development on Llangewydd Road in Bridgend.

With a collection of two, three and four-bedroom homes, the development has something for everyone, from first-time buyers to growing families.
