Persimmon Homes Award

Persimmon Homes supports Venture Trust's wilderness journeys

Venture Trust has recently received funding of £1,000 from Persimmon Homes, through its Community Champions scheme.

The donation will be used to purchase new sets of fleece jackets and trousers, crucial items of clothing worn all year round by participants whilst on a wilderness journey. Our wilderness journeys take place all year round, often in the Scottish Highlands, so consequently these items of warm clothing are also in constant use!

Jim Kirkpatrick of Persimmon Homes East Scotland, said; “Venture Trust work hard to improve the quality of life for thousands of disadvantaged young people through outdoor development activities and we are very proud to support such a brilliant cause.”

Venture Trust provides all the kit & equipment required on a wilderness journey to remove this barrier for someone who wants to attend, and would like to thank Persimmon Homes, through the Community Champions Scheme, for their support.
