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.
Persimmon Homes is an official partner of Team GB and the Persimmon Charitable Foundation enlisted the help of medallists Kat Copeland and Callum Skinner to help determine the three regional finalists for each business division.
One initiative from each category will go on to win £100,000 each through a national award scheme to be decided by a public vote.
As well as the £100,000 first prize, there will be a £50,000 second prize and a £20,000 third prize in each sector, while a further 87 shortlisted projects will each receive £5,000.
Online voting opened on July 23 and will close at midnight on September 27.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR LITTLE FUNDRAISERS
We are looking for kids in Moray that would want to raise money for Moray School Bank. They could do a sponsored event, a bake sale or any cool or wacky ideas they may come up with for a challenge( as long as it's safe ). There is no minimum amount, even the smallest amount of fundraising is helpful...
If you have a child that loves to help others and enjoys fundraising then please get in touch as we want Moray School Bank to be based on the kids in Moray supporting the kids in Moray and we would welcome their help.
Message us if you have any questions or you have a budding fundraiser who just loves to help others and wants to get involved.
Look forward to hearing from you!
Moray School Bank - children supporting children
Our aim as a group of volunteers is to offer new school uniform and warm winter clothing to children living in financial hardship across Moray. We hope to be able to improve the lives of children living in our local authority by helping to lighten the financial burden of families facing hardship. We are committed to helping children be equal and have the opportunity to reach their potential at school. Our ethos is to involve all the children across Moray in helping us to acheive our aim so that our local children can help their peers.
We are able to do this by accepting donations of new school uniform and warm winter items, donations of 'as new' items, financial donations through our paypal page and also by fundraising through our events and grant funding applications.
We accept referrals from schools and agencies working with children, we then distribute the clothes to children in need across Moray.
Our trustees are adults volunteering their time and our fundraising committee is a group of local children who come up with the ideas and put our fundraising events into place.
