Allison Homes makes Easter donations to local foodbanks

We are proud to have celebrated Easter by donating a total of 122 chocolate eggs to local foodbanks across two of our regions.

Our East region organised a collection amongst staff across both our Peterborough head office and nearby sites and were able to donate a total of 100 eggs. Over in our South West region, staff were able to come together to collect 22 eggs.

The successful collections means families in need of assistance will be able to enjoy a special treat for the occasion.

The eggs collected from our East region were donated to Peterborough Foodbank which was opened in October 2012 by local churches and community groups, working together to stop hunger in the local area. Donations from the public make up the vast majority of the food they distribute, making them crucial to their continued operation.

Julie Gooding, Community Action Development Worker at Peterborough Foodbank, said: “We are so grateful for this generous donation. It will make such a difference to our families to have eggs this Easter when they would otherwise have gone without. Thank you so much, there will be lots of happy children thanks to Allison Homes.”

The eggs collected in our South West region were handed over to Churches Housing Action Team (CHAT). The charity, founded in 1995, supports those experiencing homelessness or food insecurity across mid Devon and gave out almost 4,000 food parcels last year.

A representative for CHAT said: “Many thanks to Allison Homes South West for the generous and thoughtful donation of 22 Easter eggs.”

John Anderson, CEO of Allison Group, said: “At Allison Homes giving back to the communities we build in is at the core of what we do, and we will always look for ways to do so. I’d like to thank all of our staff who donated and commend everyone at both Peterborough Foodbank and CHAT for all the important work they do.”
