Housing firm help to boost heritage projects
by Danielle Thompson

A HOUSING development company has given a boost to heritage and health projects.

Persimmon Homes have awarded H&R Ainscough Barge Restoration and the Douglas Cardiac Trust £1,000 each as part of their national Community Champions scheme, which seeks to support groups and charities working to improve the quality of life or environment for local people.

Diane Finch, sales director for Persimmon Homes Lancashire, said: “Our Ainscough Mill development overlooks the canal in Burscough, offering unique views for people living there. Just like the mill itself, the historic waterway is a lasting reminder of the industrial heritage of the area and something to be treasured. We worked tirelessly to restore and renovate the mill and are pleased to support the group preserving the last two 1933 barges.

”The Douglas Cardiac Trust is a local charity providing medical support in the villages of Tarleton, Bank and Hesketh Bank. As well as helping to fund First Responder and First Aid provision, the group has placed more than 30 defibrillators in public buildings and supported individuals with complex medical needs. Such a service in a semi-rural area is a lifeline for local people and very deserving of our help.“
