Cardiff City FC Foundation welcomed Sarah Foulkes, Ashley Davies and Owen Gent from Persimmon Homes Wales to Cardiff City Stadium for the recent Rotherham fixture, following their very generous donation of £1,000 to the Foundation’s Disability & Health programme.


The donation, which comes as part of Persimmon’s “Community Champions” initiative, will be used to purchase some much-needed kit for the players of all four of the adult disability teams run by the Foundation. The Llantrisant-based company is committed to giving out £24,000 to charities and community groups in South East Wales, over a 12 month period.


Victoria Williams, Head of Sales at Persimmon Homes East Wales, said:


It’s a real pleasure to support Cardiff City FC Foundation’s Disability programme in this way. They do fantastic work with disabled sportsmen and sportswomen across South Wales.


We are committed to supporting the communities in which we work and Community Champions gives us an ideal platform to do that.


Disability & Health Department Coordinator, Josh Law added:


We are extremely grateful for Persimmon Homes’ very kind donation to the department. It means our teams can compete wearing brand new kit, which means a huge amount to the players.


The Foundation would like to thank Persimmon Homes for pledging their support through this charitable donation.
