Grand donation to children’s charity
A business has donated £1,000 to a charity that helps children and young people with brain tumours.
Peterborough-based Persimmon Homes East Midlands has donated the cash to Anna’s Hope as part of the firm’s Community Champions project,
Anna’s Hope was chosen by the business because it is making a real difference to the lives of children and young people in Lincolnshire, Rutland, Cambridgeshire, East Anglia and Suffolk who are diagnosed with a brain tumour.
They support a pioneering new rehabilitation service called Brainbow with the Anna’s Hope Therapy Team, which is based at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge and provides neuro-rehabilitation support for the children.
Carole Hughes, who launched the charity with her husband Rob in memory of her daughter Anna, said: “We are delighted that Persimmon Homes East Midlands have chosen to support our charity.
“Anna’s Hope has really made great strides in the last year and we are proud of the work we do.”
Cheryl Bissett, from Persimmon Homes East Midlands, said the community initiative was a way of supporting people across every city, town and village where the company works.
She said: “We are very proud to hand over this donation Anna’s Hope, an extremely worthy cause.”
