National homebuilder Miller Homes has played a part in the improvement of the Salford Foundation’s recreational spaces, with a donation of a new and much needed dartboard and darts for service users of the charity to use to wind down and relax.


The Salford Foundation, established over thirty years ago, helps young people and adults in Salford, Greater Manchester and the North West create better futures by providing job opportunities they might not have previously had access to.

The charity has invested £1.7m into people and services, and has so far helped 9,317 people across 25 projects.

Miller Homes seeks to support local initiatives after bringing new homes to the Greater Manchester area in Stretford, at Novus, and after the confirmation of its new housing development in Northenden. Varsity Quarter, which is to be built on the former Manchester College later this year, will provide 224 new high-quality homes.

Helen Garry, Business Development Manager at the Salford Foundation, said, “We were delighted to receive the donation from Miller Homes. The dartboard went down really well with our volunteers and visitors alike – we even set up a team competition over Christmas!”

Clare Noakes, Sales Director of Miller Homes North West, commented, “We at Miller Homes endeavour to support local initiatives, in order to show to the community the benefits of being located nearby a housing development that truly cares about its residents.

“Recently we donated 200 chocolate boxes to the Variety the Children’s Charity North West, which is based in Stretford. We’re told this was a welcome surprise after a turbulent couple of

years. We’re excited to continue to work with local charities and provide them with the things they need.”

Miller Homes’ Novus development, based in Stretford, is available for viewings now. Its sales centre and show homes are open 7 days a week from 10:30am-5:30pm. Those interested can book a visit via Miller Homes’ website or by calling 0330 1628 149. More information will be released on the Northenden development in the coming months
