Miller Homes makes generous donation to Burnley FC Community Foodbank
A Burnley foodbank has benefited from a generous donation of foodstuffs from a housing developer.
The company is currently building in the community at The Calders, in Cliviger. It has donated over two dozen litres of UTH milk, 10kg of rice, instant noodles, and plenty of jars of pasta and curry sauces. Alongside this, the Burnley charity has also received tea, coffee and sugar along with tinned vegetables, fruit, and soups from the homebuilder.
Burnley FC in the Community Foodbank is both supported and operated by local Championship club Burnley FC. The team’s registered charity supports local people who are struggling – no questions asked. The project which runs a food bank and distribution centre, aims to deliver a positive change for people in the town, using food as the catalyst.
Nathan Norris, manager at the Burnley FC in the Community Foodbank said: “From myself and the community of Burnley, we want to give a massive thank you to Miller Homes for their donation to our charity. Their kind donation will go a long way.”
Clare Noakes, Miller Homes’ Sales Director for the North West, added: “It’s been fantastic to work with Burnley FC and their Community Foodbank initiative It’s clear to see that the club has really made a huge impact to the local community with all their hard work. For as long as we’re building at The Calders (and even after that) we’ll be a big champion of these kinds of causes.”
The Community Foodbank is always looking for donations. Those interested in helping support the project can visit the “Burnley FC in the Community” website, to find out more.
Recently, Miller Homes donated a range of supplies from sleeping bags, hygiene products, and food donations to local community charity Gateway homeless shelter, to help with its Cold Weather Initiative. Prior to that, the company has enjoyed a positive relationship with St John’s Primary School in Cliviger, most recently issuing them with brand new hi vis jackets as part of the builder’s ‘Home Safe’ initiative.
