Grand gesture for young footballers

Posted onPosted on 3rd Oct

A Mansfield junior football team has thanked a housebuilder for a £500 donation.

Mansfield Town under-13s received the money from the Persimmon Homes Nottingham Community Champions scheme.

The initiative enables clubs, groups and good causes to apply for funding up to the value of £1,000 to match money they have already raised themselves.

The club, based at Mansfield Town FC’s One Call Stadium, aims to engage and improve the lives of the local community through the power of sport. The donation will fund essential equipment for the team.

Daniella Grant, from the team, said: “We are grateful that Persimmon Homes have chosen us to benefit from their Community Champions donation.

“The funding will make a difference to our players.”

Neil Follows, managing director of Persimmon Homes Nottingham, said: “We are very pleased to be supporting grassroot junior teams in the areas in which we are building. We wish the team great success for new season.”
