Redditch Editorial 2nd Apr, 2020 Updated: 2nd Apr, 2020   0

A GRANT scheme has been launched to support local community groups involved in education, arts, health and sport.

The Building Futures scheme, launched by Persimmon Homes, is aimed at groups working with people aged under 18.

Russell Griffin, director of Persimmon Homes South Midlands, said: “We will make donations of £1,000 to £100,000 to grassroots sports groups, charities dealing with physical and mental health issues, as well as community arts and education projects.

“As the country feel the effects of the Covid-19 outbreak we believe that now more than ever we need to look after the health and wellbeing of the youngest in our communities.”

Groups are being asked to pitch their ideas on how they will best spend the cash.

Mr Griffin added: “We will consider anything from new clubhouses and kits, to education and arts centres, medical research and support groups.”
