A brain injury support group has received a grand donation from a Peterborough-based housebuilder.

Headway Cambridgeshire, which provides support services to brain injury sufferers and their families and carers, has received £1,000 from Persimmon Homes East Midlands, based in Commerce Road, Lynch Wood.

Gavin Chappell-Bates, fundraiser of Headway Cambridgeshire, said: “We’re thrilled to have received this kind donation towards our continued work with those affected by brain injury.

“This generous funding allows us to continue to run our hub services, a vital component of our rehabilitation work.”

Nova Eames, head of sales at Persimmon Homes East Midlands, said: “I’m delighted to see this money going to such a worthwhile cause.

“We want to help out those in the areas in which we build and Headway Cambridgeshire really is a vital charity that will benefit from our funding.

“Our scheme gives charities and community groups from across Cambridgeshire the chance to apply for up to £1,000 of funding. It has been a hugely successful initiative which has allowed us to support more than 20 good causes already.”

“Applications for funding can be made quickly and easily by visiting www.persimmonhomes.com/charity.”
