A Portsmouth carer support group has received £1,000 from housebuilder Persimmon Homes South Coast.

The Friday Carers group was donated the money through Persimmon’s community champions scheme – a year-long initiative to support local groups and charities.

The group meets monthly for coffee, talks and days out, offering respite to carers who seldom receive a break.

Group member Margaret Tait said: ‘With this very generous donation, we can continue to hire the minibus for our regular and much-enjoyed days out.’
