Village hall fundraiser given £1,000 boost for much-needed repair
A leading housebuilder has donated £1,000 towards much-needed refurbishment works at the Terrington St Clement's village hall.
Volunteers are trying to raise £20,000 to repair the toilets, external doors and internal lighting, which are all original features when the Churchgate Way hall was built in 1980.
And now Persimmon Homes East Midlands has stepped in with a £1,000 grant, as part of their Community Champions scheme.
Fundraiser Roger Williamson said: 'We have applied to three bodies for funding and this generous grant will certainly help. Terrington St Clement is an expanding village which means that the village hall will be used even more in the future.'
Simon McDonald, managing director at Persimmon Homes East Midlands, said: 'We are pleased to be able to support Terrington St Clement Village Hall, it's a great facility which brings people together.'
