Albemarle Calls on Community to Help with Easter Foodbank Appeal

Albemarle Homes, is for the second year, supporting Doncaster Foodbanks this Easter by opening up its sales centre and head office as drop off points for people wanting to donate a chocolate egg, to ensure no Doncaster child goes without a chocolatey treat this Easter.

We have pledged our support to the city’s three Trussell Trust Foodbank centres once again, after donating over 100 eggs following a hugely successful appeal in 2023.

Julie Poland, Project Manager – Doncaster Foodbank said, “The remarkable donation from Albemarle Homes last year really did make a difference to the children and families who use our service.  It’s lovely to be able to pop a chocolate treat in the food bags and help make Easter time a little special, for children in the area, even at times like these.”

We are again calling on members of the city’s communities to help collect as many chocolate eggs as possible in time for the bank holiday weekend, ensuring the Easter Bunny doesn’t forget any child this Easter.

“As a local housebuilder we see how important it is when communities come together to help a common cause.  Our Easter Egg appeal is one way we can support those communities to help other Doncaster families and spread a little extra joy to children this Easter,” said Charlotte Kirk, Head of Sales at Albemarle Homes.

We have made our sales centre at Westmoor Grange on Hatfield Lane in Armthorpe, and head office on Silica Court in Kirk Sandall, drop off points for any kind donations made by members of the community.  Any type of Easter egg will be gratefully received, and all donations should be made before Monday 18th March to give enough time for collection and distribution.

The Trussell Trust has branches across the UK and support those who live in hunger and poverty as well as lobbying for social and economic change.  The three Doncaster Foodbank centres, last financial year, fed 8,162 people in financial crisis which was a 100% increase on the 4,089 people the year before. This year sadly, the numbers are set to hit 9,000.

Charlotte commented: “The Trussell Trust do a fantastic job in supporting those families who may be finding times challenging. We hope our Easter egg appeal will help spread a little happiness to those families and their children this Easter.”
