Help local youth sport
RESIDENTS are being urged to get behind a youth sports project to help them win £200,000 in a national competition launched by a leading housebuilder.
Persimmon Homes launched its Healthy Communities scheme last May with the aim of giving £615,000 to support amateur youth sport in Wales, England and Scotland.
Thirty finalists are now competing for the top prize with the winner to be announced at a gala dinner at York Racecourse on Thursday, March 22.
One individual or group will scoop £200,000, while two runners-up will win £50,000 each.
Each of the 27 other finalists will win £5,000 each.
Game on Wales has been chosen to represent Persimmon Homes East Wales in the final and it is now up to the public to decide on the winner with online voting under way for six weeks until March 16.
Through sport Game On Wales has played a powerful role addressing the growing health, skills and employment inequalities within exmining communities.
Every penny of Persimmon Homes’ support will be matched pound for pound by The Coalfields Regeneration Trust.
All Game on Wales’ activity is measured to understand and map the social impact and impact on the local economy.
