Generous donation received from the Persimmon Homes Community Champions scheme We are thrilled at Heartburn Cancer UK to start the year with the news that we have been selected to receive a very generous £1000 donation through the Persimmon Homes Community Champions Scheme. This is a national programme run by Persimmon Homes, which allows charities and local groups to apply for funding up to the value of £1,000 to match funds already raised. Each of Persimmon Homes 31 businesses and their PLC head office are giving away up to £2,000 every month for a year to support organisations such as ours – that’s an amazing £64,000 a month available to fund local community initiatives. More than ever, in these unprecedented times, generosity such as this is much appreciated. These funds will make a big difference to the work we have planned for the coming year to continue raising awareness of the dangers of ignoring persistent heartburn, increasing early diagnosis, improving outcomes and saving lives.
