A LOCAL charity which supports struggling families in Middlewich has recieved a pledge of financial support from a property developer.

Family-run Anwyl Homes will donate £500 every year for the next three years to Middlewich and District Foodbank.  

The company previously donated £3,300 to the foodbank in 2021, with the help of its suppliers and subcontractors, as part of its 90th anniversary charity pledges and to assist in the wake of the Covid pandemic.

Anwyl is currently building homes at its Victoria Mills development on Middlewich Road, Holmes Chapel.

Middlewich and District Foodbank is affiliated to The Trussell Trust, which is working to combat hunger and poverty in the UK through its network of foodbanks.

Thomas Bradley, senior sales manager at Anwyl Homes, said: “We always try to support the communities in which we build, and Middlewich and District Foodbank is there for those most in need.

“The charity works tirelessly to provide a lifeline to families across Middlewich, Holmes Chapel and the surrounding areas.”

Middlewich Foodbank provides emergency food and support to people in poverty, and through its affiliation to the Trussell Trust, is also campaigning for change to end the need for foodbanks in the UK.

Sally Howard, trustee of Middlewich and District Foodbank, said: “We are so grateful for Anwyl Homes’ ongoing support and financial contribution.

“We’re currently fundraising to secure a new home for the foodbank. Our current premises provide us with a short-term solution, but we need assistance with securing a more permanent space.

“Rental charges are way in excess of our ability to afford, meaning the sponsorship from Anwyl makes all the difference to our campaign.”
