The cash will be used to buy new equipment for the sessions.

Samantha Nicholson, of CanDo Connect CIC, said: “This donation is fantastic news for us. We are extremely grateful to Persimmon Homes for their generosity.

“We are raising money for buy new exercise equipment such as a new sound system, exercise balls, exercise mats, pilates balls and agility ladders so we can provide a range of activities to meet the needs of all our users.

“We also want to extend the number of activities available to children and teens during holidays, when families are isolated due to the lack of opportunities.
