York school club gets a cash donation for outdoor equipment

16 March 2021

A York out-of-school club has secured funding from our Yorkshire region for new outdoor play equipment.

Poppleton Out Of School Club has received £500 from our Community Champions scheme. The charitable club supports Poppleton Road Primary school with wraparound childcare, as well as providing a holiday club for other local youngsters aged 4 to 14. With an even greater focus on outdoor activities, due to the current pandemic, the donation will fund additional play equipment to minimise the need for sharing.

Poppleton Out Of School Club manager, Kathryn McKellar, said: “This is amazing news at such a challenging time. We are continually reviewing our practises and procedures to ensure we can keep our children and staff as safe as possible. Simply having more outdoor equipment to encourage new games is just one step to achieving this.”

The Community Champions initiative seeks to support grassroots groups, schools and charities in areas where the company is building. All of the regions make two donations of up to £1,000 every month.

Scott Waters, managing director of Persimmon Homes Yorkshire, said: “Community Champions has allowed us to support dozens of good causes and we continue to encourage other such groups to apply – as next month they could be the fortunate beneficiaries.”
