Westhoughton Community Vision has received £1,000 from a UK housebuilder to support them in their re-opening after covid.

The centre, which has more than 500 people a week using its services, successfully applied for the funding through the Persimmon Homes Community Champions scheme.

During lockdown, the centre supported residents in the Westhoughton area by organising food deliveries and prescription pickups. They are now looking forward to re-opening their doors again and getting back to providing much-needed sessions.

Anna Marie Watters, chair of Westhoughton Vision, said: “We are extremely grateful for the kind donation from Persimmon Homes.

“We want to run extra classes for all our little cherubs as our waiting list for activities has grown massively since the start of the pandemic.

“The funding will go towards setting up these new groups and covering the costs which enable them to run.”

Dave Hodgson, sales director of Persimmon Homes North West, said: “Westhoughton Community Vision provides sessions which are so important to members of their community – highlighting what our Community Champions scheme is all about.

“We offer two donations of up to £1,000 each month to worthy good causes and we are so pleased that Westhoughton Community Vision is one of these.”
