Vote to boost Health Stars chance of winning share of £1m Fund
Published: 29 July 2019
The Health Stars Impact Appeal is on the shortlist to win a share of Persimmon Homes’ Building Futures £1million pot supporting under-18s nationwide but first we need online votes to win.
Persimmon Homes Yorkshire is backing Health Stars to be a prize winner at a gala dinner in October, where cash awards of £100,000, £50,000 or £20,000 will be made to those winning the most online votes.
It is a huge achievement to have been selected as a regional finalist, but now we really need people to get behind us and get voting so that we are in the strongest possible position to earn one of the top three cash awards on the night.
Any funds we’re lucky enough to receive will be put to use providing enhancements at the new in-patient unit being built to support young people across the Humber with mental health conditions. The money would specifically be used to enhance garden spaces, giving patients the opportunity to engage with the outdoors through play, therapy and relaxation.
Voting could not be simpler. Just log on to www.persimmonhomes.com/building-futures and select Health Stars and vote for us.
Building Futures is being delivered through the Persimmon Charitable Foundation, which last year donated £620,000 to support children’s sport.
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 has begun and will close at midnight on September 27.
