Persimmon Homes East Wales is giving Tŷ Hafan the opportunity to win a significant sum of money at a special event later this year, where cash awards of £100,000, £50,000 or £20,000 will be made to those organisations with the most online votes in each category.
Maria Timon Samra, Chief Executive of Tŷ Hafan, said: “We’re so proud to be chosen as a regional finalist and it’s given everyone a massive boost. The last 18 months or so have been extremely challenging for charities across the UK, including ourselves, so we’d really appreciate if people would get behind us by voting.
“If we won one of the top three cash awards then it would make a massive difference to the communities we support on a daily basis. This money would enable us to launch our Family Support Volunteer project which will match volunteers to families known to Tŷ Hafan with a need for extra support to help them thrive in their own home. In turn, this will enable us to increase bed capacity at the hospice for children and families who need respite, crisis and end of life care”
Maria Timon Samra added: “Voting could not be simpler. Just visit https://www.persimmonhomes.com/building-futures/finalists and tab to select Tŷ Hafan. Your support means so much to us and the children and families we support”.
Building Futures is delivered through the Persimmon Charitable Foundation in partnership with Team GB, the British Olympic Association.
Through Building Futures, a total of 128 grants of £1,000 have been awarded to groups supporting sport, education & arts and health across Persimmon’s 31 regional businesses and its head office.
As well as the £100,000 first prize, there will be a £50,000 second prize and a £20,000 third prize in each category, while a further 87 shortlisted projects will each receive £5,000.
Online voting opened on Monday 11 October and runs until midnight on November 19. Voters can vote once every day during this time, so every vote counts!
