Supporting your communities

At Persimmon we're proud to support our local communities. Our Community Champions programme was established in 2015 and has already donated more than £3 million to over 3,500 good causes across Great Britain. We also have a programme of community events taking place as part of our partnership with Team GB for the 2024 Paris Olympics, along with other great initiatives. 


Our hugely successful Community Champions programme has already donated more than £1 million to good causes in England, Wales and Scotland. Whilst the programme is running, each of our regional offices makes a donation of up to £6,000 every quarter to local organisations.

We're proud to be one of Team GB's official partners for Paris 2024. In the lead up to the Olympics we'll be posting lots of exciting content in partnership with Team GB, from athlete appearances to competitions and challenges.
