Already in Haverhill, nearly £9,000 has been donated to local causes through Persimmon’s Community Champions funding.  Further financial support has also been provided through Persimmon Homes Building Futures initiative.

One of the causes benefitting is Catch22, located in Haverhill. Over the past five years, more than 5,600 young people have been supported by Catch 22 Suffolk Positive Futures and currently around 400 local young people regularly engage with the project, developing the skills and confidence needed to achieve their goals. Persimmon’s £1,000 donation has helped t Catch22 deliver a free weekly sports project for secondary school age youngsters in Haverhill. For more information about the organisation visit
