New Christmas Food Bank Collection Point In Bitton

Leading housebuilder Linden Homes Western, creating the Bitton Mill new homes development in Bitton, is inviting local schools, businesses and residents to get involved in its work to help collect food for Keynsham Foodbank during the festive period and early in the new year.

The housebuilder has pledged its support this season, to help those in need. Keynsham Foodbank collects supplies and provides three days’ emergency food and assistance to local people who are referred to them in crisis.

For those able to donate, non-perishable food can be dropped off at Bitton Mill’s sales and marketing suite on 30th December or between 2nd and 7th January, ahead of the housebuilder’s team hand-delivering the gifts to the food bank in the new year. The items most in need include:

Sue Scholfield, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes Western, commented: "Here at Linden Homes, we are proud to be providing homes and communities within which families can enjoy the festive period – however, we are also committed to doing our bit to help those who are not afforded that luxury. There is often a drive to help charities during Christmas and so we wanted to offer some additional support just afterwards. We also thought people may have some spare items to donate to the food bank after Christmas and the time to do so.

"We would like to invite local schools, residents and businesses in Bitton to work with us on this project and help us, to help those in need this year. The Bitton community is one with real spirit and we are pleased to be tapping in to this to support such a worthy cause."

The sales and marketing suite at Bitton Mill is open for food bank donations on Saturday 30th December and from Tuesday 2nd to Sunday 7th January between 10am and 5pm. Visit Bitton Mill, off Mill Lane, Bitton, Bristol, BS30 6HJ
