Edinburgh-based charity SportsAid Scotland is in the running to win a share of a £1m Persimmon Homes Building Futures fund aimed at supporting U18s across the UK – but first they need online votes to win.
SportsAidsScotland makes a number of awards each year and Scottish athletes and Para athletes have benefited from their generosity for many years.
Persimmon Homes East Scotland is backing SportsAid Scotland to be a prize winner at a special event later this year, where cash awards of £100,000, £50,000 or £20,000 will be made to those with the most online votes.
‘We’re so proud to be chosen as a regional finalist and it’s given everyone a massive boost. The last 18 months or so have been extremely challenging for charities across the UK, including ourselves, so we’d really appreciate if people would get behind us and vote for us, ‘ chief executive Roddy Mackenzie.
‘If we could win any of the top three cash awards then it would make a massive difference to the young athletes and Para athletes we support. We have backed the likes of Sir Chris Hoy in the past and we find athletes can hugely benefit from our annual grants.’
Voting could not be simpler. Just visit www.persimmonhomes.com/building-futures/ and select SportsAid Scotland, .
Online voting opened on Monday runs until midnight on November 19.
