Specialists in Cerebral Palsy

Persimmon Homes donates £1,000

Generous housebuilder, Persimmon Homes, has donated a fantastic £1,000 to our Bobath Wales Children and Family Support Project.

The gift comes as part of Persimmon’s Community Champions campaign. This campaign means that up to £60,000 is given to UK charities and good causes each month.

What does it mean to us?

Donations like this one help us to provide specialist therapy for children who have cerebral palsy. Our aim is to improve their quality of life.

Emma Brooks, our Trusts and Legacies Co-Ordinator, is delighted to receive this donation from Persimmon Homes.

“Cerebral palsy is a permanent disorder of posture and movement, resulting from brain damage before, during or after birth. The therapy we provide means that physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists all work together to focus on the needs of each child.

“The initiative will address the feelings of isolation experienced by families who have a child with cerebral palsy.”

Llantilio Pertholey also benefitted from the Persimmon Homes donation. They will put their funding towards transport for children’s swimming visits.

Victoria Williams, Sales Director at Persimmon Homes South East Wales, said: “We are committed to supporting the communities in which we are building and the Community Champions scheme is just one way we can do that.

“These are two great causes which we are delighted to support.”
