Its North West headquarters is based in Stretford where the homebuilder is building at its Novus development, and therefore the two organisations have partnered for an annual Easter egg drive for many years.
Variety charity is also a stone’s throw from Miller Homes’ new Northenden-based development, Varsity Quarter.
The eggs were donated to the charity, which were then passed on to Maintained Special School Green Fold in Farnworth, Bolton, for the children there to enjoy.
Around 100 of the eggs came from a donation from the homebuilder, with the rest being made up of contributions from the North West community, including over 100 from the Land Treasury office near to Miller Homes’ Blackfield Green development in Warton.
Locals were encouraged to drop Easter eggs off at their nearest Miller Homes developments in the North West, which span from Congleton up to Warton, including locations such as Clitheroe, Greater Manchester and Catterall.
Contributions included a number of different sized chocolatey treats, with considerate donors even giving gluten free eggs for the drive.
The majority of the Easter eggs were presented to the children of Green Fold School, with others headed back to Variety’s North West offices in Greater Manchester to be distributed around the region to vulnerable and less fortunate children who may otherwise have not received an egg this Easter.
Lyn Staunton, North West Development Director for Variety said: “Every year we remain so grateful for the support from Miller Homes, these Easter eggs make such a big difference to the children that our charity supports, and we’re so pleased that Miller Homes have chosen to partner with us to do this amazing thing.”
Clare Noakes, Sales Director for Miller Homes in the North West, adds: “This is our sixth annual Easter Egg Drive for Variety, we even continued with our own donations through the pandemic restrictions. This year we were so delighted to welcome back locals to our sales centre to join us in our contributions, and they really did not disappoint!”
Variety North West provide child-focused support, helping disabled and disadvantaged children with physical or social development. The charity works hard to ensure that needs are met, and the children can enjoy a much brighter future. Following the challenges of 2020 and 2021, support for the charity is need now more than ever.
