Homes firm cash boost for Girl Guiding

Two guide and brownie packs in Northamptonshire have become the first groups to be given a cash boost by Persimmon Homes Midlands as part of its year-long initiative to support local communities.

1st Bugbrooke Brownies and 4th Rushden Guides have each received £1,000 from the regional builder, based in Northampton.

The donation to the two groups has kickstarted Persimmon’s Community Champions project, which will see a pot of £24,000 donated to local organisations and charities over the next 12 months throughout the region.

Two groups will now be chosen every month to receive a match-funding donation and organisations are being encouraged to apply by completing an online form at

The 1st Bugbrooke Brownies, needs new equipment so they can take the youngsters on a camp.
