Developer Persimmon Homes has given cash gifts to good causes in two Suffolk towns where it is currently building new housing.
It has given £1,000 donations to Felixstowe Carnival and St Felix Primary School in Haverhill from its Community Champions scheme.
The money will help stage the annual Felixstowe Carnival, a three-day community event with entertainment for all ages, including a ‘Last night of the Proms’, carnival procession, free children's area, music from local bands and a grand firework display, taking place on July 22-24.
At St Felix Primary School, the money will be used to provide new books for each of its nine classrooms, inspiring its pupils to develop a love of reading.
Persimmon is currently building homes at the 1,150-home Boyton Place in Haverhill and at Trelawny Place at Felixstowe, where the first of the 560 homes are now being occupied.
