A housebuilder has chipped in with a £1,000 grant towards urgent refurbishment of Terrington St Clement's Village Hall.

The building on Churchgate Way is in need of work, particularly the toilets, external doors and internal lighting, which are all original features of when the hall was built in 1980.

Volunteers are trying to raise £20,000 for the work – and now Persimmon Homes East Midlands has stepped in with £1,000.

Roger Williamson, one of the fundraisers, said: 'The village hall is in urgent need of refurbishment in certain areas. We have applied to three bodies for funding – and this generous grant from Persimmon Homes will certainly help. Terrington is an expanding village which means that the village hall will be used even more in the future.'

The donation comes as part of Persimmon's Community Champions scheme. Each year, the firm donates almost £700,000 to good causes.
