Two regional community projects have been selected to receive £1000 each, as part of the Persimmon Homes Anglia Community Champions scheme.

The national match-funding programme seeks to support groups and charities working to improve the quality of life or environment for local people.

Aylsham St Giles Cricket Club provides training to a range of adult, junior and senior teams, and will use the £1,000 windfall towards new sporting equipment to help introduce young members of the community to the sport.

Abbey Kindergarten Pre-School in Wymondham welcomes children aged two to school age.

The pre-school is a charity organisation which is run by a committee of parents, and provides care and education for children in the community. The match-funding donation from Persimmon Homes will help fund a new outdoor shed as well as new equipment for its children.
