A Scarborough project that uses surf therapy for young people experiencing mental health concerns has received £1,000 from a regional builder.

The Wave Project was awarded the donation from Persimmon Homes Yorkshire’s Building Futures campaign.

Siobhan Whitefield from The Wave Project, said: “It costs in the region of £3,000 to provide a six week surf therapy session for 10 students. This donation is a big help as we work towards welcoming more than 60 new young people this year.”

A total of 128 grants of £1,000 will be awarded across Persimmon’s 32 regional businesses. Visit www.persimmonhomes.com/building-futures/ for more information.
