Anna Poppy’s Army was selected to receive the donation as part of the Persimmon Homes Community Champions Scheme.

Anna Poppy Lawson has medulloblastoma, a form of childhood cancer which doctors initially thought would be curable .

The NHS has told her family it can offer only radiotherapy and chemotherapy, with a 20pc chance of success.

So far the charity has raised almost £50,000 to send Anna Poppy to San Francisco for a potential treatment trial.

Ben Lawson, Anna’s father, said: “My wife and I would like to make a heartfelt thank you to Persimmon Homes for making an extremely generous donation to Anna’s fund.”
