Bloor Homes sets up donation station for Bedford Food Bank

With a shocking 4 million Brits* now turning to food banks for support, Bloor Homes has set up a donation station at its Cranfield Park development in Cranfield, Ampthill Chase development in Ampthill and St Andrews development in Biggleswade, where it will collect donations for the local Bedford Food Bank.

Running from the start of November until mid-December, the family owned developer is encouraging local residents to bring non-perishable items including cereal, pasta, rice, coffee/tea and tinned produce down to the development, where it will collect donations before delivering them to Bedford Food Bank before Christmas.
Sales Director for Bloor Homes South Midlands, Vanessa Macnee, comments: 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.
The statistics show a sharp increase in the number of families who are relying on the support of food banks**. 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
