Cerebral Palsy Sport wins £1,000 funding from Housebuilder
Cerebral Palsy Sport has been awarded a £1,000 cash donation by Persimmon Homes Nottingham as part of the company’s national campaign Community Champions.
The Community Champions programme offers charities and groups a chance to apply for funding up to the value of £1,000 to match money they have already raised themselves. Since its launch in 2015 Persimmon has donated more than £1 million to causes around the UK.
Ali Talbot, Chief Executive at Cerebral Palsy Sport, said: “We have the passion and the expertise to help young people overcome the challenges of their impairments which gives them the positive life-changing benefits that being able participate in sport can offer.
“At the heart of our charity is the our inspiring and inclusive Adapted Sports Programme where we first introduce children and young people with cerebral palsy to the fun and enjoyment of taking part in different adapted sports including frame football, RaceRunning, Table cricket and polybat.
“We’re thrilled with the donation from Persimmon Homes Nottingham which will be used to buy new equipment and allow more young people to be included.”
Neil Follows, managing director for Persimmon Homes Nottingham, said: “The programme Cerebral Palsy Sport provides helps more children to discover the joys of adapted sports.
“The work they do is exemplary and we hope this donation will further assist them in their mission to bring sports to anyone with a disability.”
