House build­ing scheme help NSPCC

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your News -

A city com­pany has awarded one of the coun­try’s lead­ing chil­dren’s char­ity with a do­na­tion of £1000. Per­sim­mon Homes East Mid­lands, based in Com­merce Road at Peterborough Busi­ness Park, do­nated the money to the NSPCC as part of its Com­mu­nity Cham­pi­ons scheme. Each month, the house build­ing com­pany go through dozens of ap­pli­ca­tions to choose their two Com­mu­nity Cham­pi­ons, who then each re­ceive up to £1000. Bar­bara Elsey, of NSPCC, said: “We are ex­tremely grate­ful to Per­sim­mon Homes for this do­na­tion. We rely heav­ily on do­na­tions from busi­nesses and it’s great to see Per­sim­mon show­ing their sup­port. Abuse robs chil­dren of their child­hood. With­out help, the scars of abuse can last a life­time.” The Com­mu­nity Cham­pi­ons is a na­tional scheme with Per­sim­mon dish­ing out up to £2,000 ev­ery month. Since its start, the com­pany has do­nated more than £1 mil­lion to good causes.
