New Forest based property developer, Pennyfarthing Homes, pledged its support to Milford-on-Sea during this challenging year by donating £1,600 to the community, helping to bring some Christmas cheer this season.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Pennyfarthing Homes donated £500 to Milford-on-Sea Primary School, to use towards a new marquee, to offer extra space for class bubbles and give children an extra outdoor area in bad weather.
In addition, Pennyfarthing Homes also donated £260 to the school’s Parents Association, allowing a new Xbox console to be included as the main prize in the Christmas raffle.
Deborah Cummings, School Business Manager, said:
We’re delighted that Pennyfarthing Homes wanted to support the children of Milford-On-Sea Primary School. We have not been able to hold our usual fundraising events in recent times, so these generous donations have made a huge difference.
Beyond the school, Pennyfarthing Homes has also sponsored the dazzling Christmas lights display at the Milford-on-Sea village green.
In 2019, a Just Giving page was set up by locals Diana Brushwood and Tracy Haupt in the hope of raising money for decorations in the village. This year, Pennyfarthing Homes pledged £840, which has allowed for eight trees to be illuminated with commercial-grade LED lights. Each of the trees represents the following: Milford-on-Sea Primary School, Milford Pre-school, Milford Explorers Day Nursery, Guides, Brownies, Cubs and Scouts, Milford-on-Sea Youth Football Club, and the four churches in the village.
Diana Brushwood commented:
Huge thanks to Pennyfarthing Homes for the donation for the Milford-on-Sea Christmas lights. Last year, we used battery powered lights which were rather dim but this year, the trees look spectacular!
Sheetal Smith, Sales and Marketing Director at Pennyfarthing Homes, added:
At Pennyfarthing Homes, we are passionate about giving back to the communities in which we build. We’re pleased to be able to spread some festive cheer this year and bring some sparkle to both the Primary School and the village green in Milford-on-Sea.
