Funding boost for community projects

2 regional organisations are celebrating after being selected to receive community funding. St Anne's Kite Festival and Only Foals and Horses are the latest recipients of Persimmon Homes Lancashire's Community Champions donations. The year-long scheme provides 2 grants of up to £1,000 each month to local groups which enhance their neighbourhoods.

Diane Finch, sales director for Persimmon Homes Lancashire, said:- "As a company we are committed to supporting the small charities, clubs and organisations that operate near to our new homes developments. When ordinary people are giving up their time to improve their communities, they deserve our thanks and our backing."

St Anne's Kite Festival is a free family weekend which aims to bring together young and old. Held on the beach at Lytham St Anne's, the festival includes free kite making workshops for children and entertainment from local musicians.

Planning is already well under way for 2016's festival and more information can be found online.

Only Foals and Horse is an Oswaldtwistle based charity offering a safe refuge for more than 100 horses, ponies and donkeys. The organisation rescues animals at risk of mistreatment or neglect, rehabilitates the sick and provides very old and lame horses with a comfortable retirement.

The charity is heavily dependent on public donations and Persimmon's funding will be used to increase awareness of its services and fundraising campaigns. Information on how to support Only Foals and Horses can be found on the website.

Community groups, charities and good causes across the county have benefited thanks to the donations from Persimmon Homes. Organisations can apply for funding by completing a simple online form. 

The scheme invites local groups and charities to bid for cash from a £750,000 national fund, with 2 donations of up to £1,000 being made locally every month.

Persimmon Homes Lancashire operates new homes developments throughout Lancashire and Cumbria.

Christmas boost for married couples in the North West

WITH 500,000 people eligible for receiving Marriage Allowance in the North West, married couples are being reminded to apply for a Christmas cash boost by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

Applying online for Marriage Allowance; a Tax break for married couples; is quick and easy. Couples can apply at:- Gov.UK/Marriage-Allowance

The Allowance means a spouse or civil partner who doesn't pay Tax; either because they're not earning at all or because they're earning below £10,600; can transfer up to £1,060 of their personal Tax-free allowance to a spouse or civil partner; as long as the recipient of the transfer doesn't pay more than the basic rate of Income Tax. This can help save couples up to £212 a year.

Ruth Owen, Director General, Personal Tax, HMRC, said:- "Marriage Allowance means couples up and down the country can get a bit of extra support at a time of year when we all need a little more cash. Whether you use it to buy presents for the family or put it away for a rainy day Marriage Allowance means saving £212 on your Tax bill every year. People can apply at any point in the Tax year and still receive the full benefit of the allowance."
