Persimmon Community Grant

The donationof £1000 has been made to Bedford Daycare Hospice by the leading regional builder Persimmon Homes East Midlands.

The cash has been donated through the Community Champions fund, which sees Persimmon Homes East Midlands donate a pot of £2,000 each month to share between two worthy causes to match their fundraising activities.

Carol Lucken, who made the charity bid on behalf of the hospice, said: “The hospice is constantly raising money to pay for the day to day running costs, and there are now plans to extend the premises and the services offered to enable more patients to attend.

“It is such a worthy cause I wanted to nominate the hospice for the £1,000 Community Champions award and I am delighted it has been selected.”

Nick Philips, director in charge of Persimmon Homes East Midlands, said: “The care and support offered by Bedford Daycare Hospice to patients and their families is truly priceless and we are glad to be able to offer our support by making the donation through our Community Champions scheme.

“We are committed to the communities in which we build and are keen to support worthy causes through our Community Champions scheme.”

Thank you so much Persimmon Homes – these funds will be put towards our Extension and Refurbishment Project.
