New Food Bank Collection Points A Success
15 Feb 2018

Linden Homes Western opened a series of new food bank collection points in December and January to help those in need.

The housebuilder invited local schools, businesses and residents to get involved in its work to collect non-perishable food after the festive period. The food is being passed to nearby food banks that will provide emergency supplies and assistance to local people who are referred to them in crisis.

The additional food bank collection points were opened at Linden Homes’ new developments at:

  • Bitton Mill in Bitton
  • Heritage Park in Radstock
  • Longhedge Village in Old Sarum, Salisbury
  • Ensleigh in Bath
  • Cleeve View in Bishop’s Cleeve
  • Kempsey Mead in Kempsey

Sue Scholfield, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes Western, commented: “We were delighted with the amount of food donated, some developments managed to collect more than others but it was fantastic to see the local communities working together.

“There is often a drive to help charities in the run-up to Christmas and so we wanted to offer some additional support afterwards. We also thought people may have some spare items to donate after Boxing Day and have the time to do so.

“We’d like to thank everyone who helped and as it was a successful initiative, I can definitely see us doing it again.”

Linden Homes is currently creating new homes at Bitton, Radstock, Bath, Salisbury, Chippenham, Thornbury, Bishop’s Cleeve and Kempsey. Visit for
