Persimmon Homes – Every Vote Counts

Health Stars is one of three Yorkshire based charities calling for public votes to help them win a share of a national housebuilder’s £1 million prize fund.

The 1st Easingwold Scout Group, Kingston upon Hull Junior Hockey Club and Humber’s NHS Foundation Trust’s charity, Health Stars, are representing Persimmon Homes Yorkshire through its Building Futures campaign and could each receive £100,000.

The three organisations have been shortlisted to compete against groups from across the UK in categories targeting grassroots sports groups, health organisations and arts & education projects.

One initiative from each category will go on to win £100,000, decided on the highest number of public votes. There will be a £50,000 second prize and a £20,000 third prize in each sector, while a further 87 shortlisted projects will each receive £5,000.

Members of the public are being urged to vote daily for the Yorkshire groups to help them secure the top prize. Voting closes on Friday, September 27.
