Regional housebuilder Allison Homes East has celebrated the Easter season by making a donation of chocolate eggs to Peterborough Foodbank.

Allison Homes East organised a collection amongst its staff across both its Peterborough head office and nearby sites, and was able to donate a total of 100 eggs. The successful collection means families in need of assistance will be able to enjoy a special treat for the occasion.

Peterborough Foodbank 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.

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.”
