Probably not everyone's favourite house builder, but Persimmon is looking to highlight its two charity projects, and local organisations are being encouraged to apply for grants. Here are the relevant details:
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
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.
