Little Harbour has received £1,000 from Persimmon Homes Cornwall and West Devon.

The donation is part of the housebuilder’s Community Champions initiative which donates up to £750,000 a year to good local causes and organisations across Great Britain.

The donation is going towards new play equipment for the soft-play facility at Little Harbour.

Sally Bridger, Area Fundraiser for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW), said: “On behalf of Little Harbour in St Austell and CHSW,  I would like to say a huge thank you to Persimmon Homes Cornwall.

“CHSW exists to make the most of short and precious lives and puts children and families at the centre of all it does.

“We strive to provide first-class care to our families and children and this funding will allow us to invest in new play equipment to ensure we deliver the best possible care at Little Harbour. 

“Little Harbour serves many families in Cornwall and we are reliant on the support of businesses, and we are delighted Persimmon has chosen to support us.”

Jane Cartwright, Sales Director at Persimmon Homes Cornwall and West Devon, said: “Our Community Champions initiative is all about supporting the communities and people where we build new homes, and with our ever-increasing presence in Cornwall, we couldn’t have found a more fitting recipient.

 Little Harbour in St Austell provides an outstanding service and supports so many families and children during incredibly difficult times.  

 “The hospice and staff places children and families at the centre of the organisation and promotes a strong, caring community environment characterised by a culture of sensitivity, trust, consideration and respect for others.

“We are proud to assist CHSW in its endeavours and outstanding work for families in Cornwall and across the wider region.”
