Persimmon Homes has donated £1,000 to Macmillan to support their Longest Day Golf Challenge. 

Site manager Damien Ramm from the Abbott Walk development in Chatteris is taking part in the annual charity day on June 21, raising funds for the cancer charity. 

He is part of a four-strong team who aim to complete four rounds at Peterborough Milton Golf Club during the golf marathon. 

They will walk in excess of 30 miles each and compete over 72 holes, while also hoping to raise £5,000 in the process. 

Persimmon Homes East Midlands have contributed £1,000 towards the fundraising goal through their 'community champions' scheme.

Damien said: “This will be an extremely long day but one that will benefit an extremely worthwhile charity, supporting those living with cancer. 

“I am grateful that Persimmon were able to make a donation to help us reach our goal and ensure we help this charity save lives.” 

Ben Smith, managing director of Persimmon Homes East Midlands, said: “We are extremely proud of Damien for stepping up to not only the physical challenge that this event presents but also fundraising for such an important charity.

“It is a pleasure to be able to support him and his team mates with this donation.”
