Persimmon Homes Building Futures fund - KWMCC Votes (Voting closes Nov 19)
VOTING NOW OPEN TO BOOST KESGRAVE COMMUNITY CENTRE’S (KWMCC) CHANCE OF WINNING A SHARE OF HOUSEBUILDER’S £1MILLION CHARITY GIVEAWAY
KWMCC is in the running to win a share of a £1million Persimmon Homes Building Futures fund aimed at supporting under-18s across the UK but first they need online votes to win.
Persimmon Homes Suffolk is backing KWMCC to be a prize winner at a special event later this year, where cash awards of £100,000, £50,000 or £20,000 will be made to those with the most online votes.
Stuart Lawson representing KWMCC said: “We’re so proud to be chosen as a regional finalist and it’s given everyone a massive boost. The last 18 months or so have been extremely challenging for charities across the UK, including ourselves, so we’d really appreciate it if people would get behind us and start voting.
“If we could win any of the top three cash awards then it would make a massive difference to the youngsters in the community that we support. This would help us immensely as we are currently fundraising to deliver a new all-weather multi-sports surface for all teams to enjoy.
“This supports our aim of encouraging young people to participate in a variety of activities for the long-term benefit of their health, wellbeing and social interaction.”
He added: “Voting could not be simpler. Just visit www.persimmonhomes.com/building-futures/finalists and select KWMCC it would mean the world to us if we could have your support.”
Building Futures is delivered through the Persimmon Charitable Foundation in partnership with Team GB, the British Olympic Association.
Through Building Futures, a total of 128 grants of £1,000 have been awarded to groups supporting sport, education & arts and health across Persimmon’s 31 regional businesses and its head office.
As well as the £100,000 first prize, there will be a £50,000 second prize and a £20,000 third prize in each category, while a further 87 shortlisted projects will each receive £5,000.
