Food bank donation station at Cranfield Park

A reported four million Brits are now using food banks for support. Bloor Homes has set up a donation station at its Cranfield Park development that will collect donations for the Bedford Food Bank.

Running from the start of November until mid-December, the developer is encouraging local residents to bring non-perishable items including:

  • Cereal
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Coffee/tea
  • Tinned produce

The donations will be delivered to Bedford Food Bank before Christmas.

Bloor Homes South Midlands sales director, Vanessa Macnee, said:

“At Bloor Homes we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build and are therefore delighted to be able to help the nearby Bedford Food Bank which does such valuable work within the local area.

“As we approach winter and the festive period we would therefore encourage people to think about those who aren’t as fortunate as they are and donate what they can to help people in need within the local area.”

Samantha Stapley, Director of Operations at The Trussell Trust said:

“Food banks across the Midlands will be working hard to provide not only essential food, but also little extras that offer hope at a time when people need it most.

“This can only be done with the support of people and businesses in local communities, so we’re very grateful for the support Bloor Homes is giving to food banks in the lead up to this Christmas.”
