Stratford Rainbows group receives £1,000 pot of gold

Stratford Editorial 9th Dec, 2022   0

A RAINBOWS group based in Stratford has received its very own pot of gold to put towards Christmas activities.

First Shottery Rainbows, that meets at Bishopton Community Centre, has received a £1,000 donation from Persimmon Homes as part of its Community Champions initiative.

The funds will be used to fund a forthcoming theatre outing and equipment for craft activities.

The donation was marked with a cheque presentation, attended by Amanda Rogers, Sales Director at Persimmon Homes South Midlands.

Evie Hodgson, Group Leader at First Shottery Rainbows, said: “We’re absolutely delighted by this kind donation from Persimmon Homes. Our goal has always been to create a group where our girls can socialise and thrive. During Covid many activities were curtailed and more recently it has become difficult to raise funds to provide the group with the materials we need to run fun, interactive sessions. This funding is going to make all the difference to us.”

Amanda Rogers added: “What we do is about much more than just building homes, it’s about leaving a lasting positive legacy in the communities that we build in. We’re always delighted to lend a hand to local schools and community groups to boost their ongoing initiatives or contribute to causes that mean a lot to them.

“It’s great to see First Shottery Rainbows put the donation to good use and only too pleased that we could help support their forthcoming theatre outing.”
