During these very difficult times as local communities take action to contain the outbreak of Covid- 19, Persimmon Homes is keenly aware that the charity sector is experiencing particular hardship.
With this in mind, we wanted to share details of two amazing charity schemes that Persimmon is actively operating, which will see millions of pounds handed out to groups supporting – specifically the under-18s and people aged over 70.
Persimmon’s Charitable Foundation has this week committed to relaunching its Building Futures scheme for 2020. As part of its sponsorship of Team GB, Persimmon will donate more than £1 million to support children in sport, health and education.
We are calling on local groups within your area which support children to apply. It can all be done online remotely at www.persimmonhomes.com/building-futures Community Champions
Persimmon’s Community Champions initiative has run since 2015 and gives away £64,000 every month in single donations up to the value of £1,000. So far over £3.5 million has been donated in the UK.
Persimmon has decided that from April 2020 all funding will go directly to groups supporting the over 70s.
If you know of any groups that could benefit from this funding they can apply online at www.persimmonhomes.com/community-champions
