Persimmon Homes Anglia is embarking on a new fundraising drive to help a leading meningitis charity.
The housebuilder has selected Meningitis Now as its 2018 nominated charity and will raise money throughout the year through employee events.
The charity, founded by Steve Dayman who lost his son Spencer to meningitis and meningococcal septicaemia, is committed to raising awareness of the devastating illness through information, research and support services.
Managing director of Persimmon Homes Anglia, Andrew Fuller, said: “Every year, all our staff are asked to vote for the charity they would like to support and this time they overwhelmingly chose Meningitis Now for the important work this organisation does.
“We have pledged to make Meningitis Now the focus of our corporate and employee fundraising throughout 2018, and are already planning plenty of sponsored events and activities.”
