Calling all charities needing a fundraising boost

Persimmon Homes East Midlands is calling on charities across Cambridgeshire, South Lincolnshire and East Northamptonshire to come forward and tell them why they need a fundraising boost.

The regional housebuilder will then appoint the most deserving cause as the company’s chosen charity.  This charity will then receive the proceeds from a variety of fundraising events held throughout the region during 2013.

Adrian Evans, managing director for  Persimmon Homes East Midlands is hoping good causes will get involved and put themselves forward for the special prize.

“As a business we work hard and are proud to create homes for families and individuals,” said Adrian.  “We’ve made this announcement today as our way of giving something back to one of these communities.  It’s an excellent opportunity for one charity looking to raise their regional profile and receive additional funding.”

To enter charities and their supporters need to state in no more than  250 words why they should become Persimmon’s chosen charity for 2013.  Entries must be sent to and received no later than Friday 15th February 2013.
