The befriending scheme (TBS) is on the shortlist to win a share of Persimmon Homes’ “Building futures” £1million fund, to go towards our Friends Community Farm Hub. However, in order to win, we need your online votes!
Persimmon Homes Eastern region is backing TBS to be a prize winner at a gala dinner in October, where cash awards of £100,000, £50,000 and £20,000 will be made to those who gain the most online votes.
The befriending scheme’s CEO, Shirley Moore, stated “It is a huge achievement to have been selected as a regional finalist, but now we really need people to get behind us and get voting so that we are in the strongest possible position to earn one of the top three cash awards on the night.”
Voting could not be more simple; just log on to the voting page and select The befriending Scheme to vote for us! We would really appreciate everyone’s support.
‘Building Futures’ is being delivered through the Persimmon Charitable Foundation, which last year donated £620,000 to support children’s sport. Through ‘Building Futures’ - across Persimmon’s 31 regional businesses and its head office - a total of 128 grants of £1,000 have been awarded to groups supporting Sport, Education & Arts and Health.
