As the company brings new homes to Stretford on the old Itron Gas Meter factory, Miller Homes has donated a large range of arts and craft supplies to local charity, Manchester Young Lives (MYL). The organisation works to promote the social and educational inclusion of children and young people within the city.

The homebuilder has kindly donated a range of arts and crafts supplies to group, with the creative art packs including a range of paints, glass pens, ceramic pens, coloured card, feathers, beads, foam stickers and coloured pipe cleaners. The gift from Miller Homes will support children’s enrichment who visit for the Manchester Young Lives’ after school clubs and holiday play provisions.

Manchester Young Lives has been running for over 50 years and works with around 4,000 children within the city. The charity has successfully developed a number of youth work, educational and training programmes particularly targeted at children and young people at risk of social exclusion.

Suzanne Cere, Deputy Chief Executive at the group commented: “We are so thankful to Miller Homes for reaching out to us and donating supplies to our young people. The arts and crafts are fantastic, and the children are very excited to get stuck in.”

Clare Noakes, Miller Homes’ Sales Director for the North West, adds: “We are always eager to help out with charities within the local area, especially when it comes to working with young people. We hope the children at MYL enjoy using the craft supplies and we hope to see some beautiful art!”

Miller Homes’ nearby development, Novus, is located in Stretford and there are a number of homes available for reservation now, with occupations already taking place. Interest can be registered and more information found on the website:
