Friday, 18th December 2020

A LOCAL housebuilder is supporting a Tamworth foodbank ahead of the busy festive season.

Redrow Midlands, which is building new homes at Amington Garden Village, presented a £250 donation to the Tamworth Foodbank. The funds will support the charity in providing emergency food parcels to local people in need this Christmas.

The Tamworth Foodbank is part of a nationwide network supported by The Trussell Trust, which works to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. The foodbank provides nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to the organisation in crisis.

Elaine Cartwright, Sales Director for Redrow Midlands, said:

“We’re delighted to be able to provide the Tamworth Foodbankwith a donation as they support so many people in the local community.

“As well as building high-quality new homes, our ethos here at Redrow is to create thriving communities, so we are pleased to be making a contribution to support people living near our Abbey Walk and Abbey Fields developments. I’d like to personally thank all of the volunteers for everything they do and I hope that the funds will make the Christmas period a little easier for those in need.”

Emma Coates, Tamworth Food Bank Project Coordinator at the Tamworth Foodbank, said:

“Here at the Tamworth Foodbank, we support those in need of short-term emergency help in our community. Christmas and the new year are sadly one of our busiest times under normal circumstances, and with the pandemic adding more challenges and pressure to families this year, we are unfortunately preparing to be busier than ever.

“The donation will certainly go a long way towards helping those in need, so we’d like to say a big thank you to the Redrow team for their support.”

Amington Fairway and Amington Green are part of the popular Amington Garden Village development, which offers a choice of two, three, four and five-bedroom properties. These sought-after homes are part of Redrow’s award-winning Heritage Collection.
