Persimmon Homes East Scotland is encouraging charities and community groups to apply for a slice of £2000 every month.

The East Scotland housebuilder has already given away more than £18,000 to good causes since the launch of its Community Champions scheme.

Now the company is inviting applications from more charities and community schemes in its region that covers the Lothians.

The Community Champions scheme began last year allowing charities and groups to apply for funding up to the value of £1000 to match money they have already raised themselves. Nationally Persimmon Homes has donated more than £700,000 in total across the UK in the first 12 months of programme.

Jim Kirkpatrick, managing director at Persimmon Homes East Scotland, said: “We have donated thousands of pounds to worthy causes in our area and we want to see more groups coming forward with their applications.

“Two Community Champions are selected each month and we are donating up to £1,000 to each.

“This has gone on to help organisations and groups already and we have had positive feedback as to how they have been helped. I’d encourage charities, community groups and organisations to apply and hopefully they will be the next Persimmon Homes Community Champion.”
