Local housebuilder Crest Nicholson is supporting Lichfield Foodbank this festive season on behalf of the community at its Green Acres development, at Alrewas.
The housebuilder set up a donation point at its Green Acres sales suite enabling site teams, residents, and visitors to donate essential items to help people over Christmas. People have donated festive food such as mince pies and tinned vegetables alongside much needed staples including soup, tea, coffee, long-life milk, and hygiene products. In addition to enabling families to enjoy a Christmas Day meal, the donation will ensure the foodbank is stocked with a range of items throughout the festive season and into January when supplies are typically lower.
Vanessa MacNee, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Midlands, comments: “We’re proud to partner with Lichfield Foodbank to help them provide vital support to those in our community who are facing hardship this winter. With an uptick in the number of people, including children, requiring packages of food and other essentials, foodbanks in the UK are under immense pressure right now.
“At Crest Nicholson, we’re about more than just building homes and are committed to helping the wider community in Lichfield and the surrounding areas. We hope that these donations can provide peace and comfort for those struggling this Christmas and ensure that everyone in Lichfield can enjoy Christmas with friends and family without worry.”
Verity Ashley, Chair of Lichfield Foodbank, adds: “We are thankful to Crest Nicholson for their support for our foodbank, which will help us provide essential items for those experiencing financial hardship across Lichfield and the surrounding areas.
“Our services make a difference to so many families and the donation means we can continue to offer support, and spread some much-needed Christmas cheer, to those who need it.”
