HUNDREDS of Easter eggs have been donated to a school in Farnworth.

Over 300 Easter eggs were raised by Miller Homes, and donators, with the majority of the Easter eggs presented to the children of Green Fold School, Farnworth.

The others were taken to its North West sales centres for Variety the Children’s Charity, to be distributed around the region to vulnerable and less fortunate children who may otherwise have not received an egg this Easter.

Lyn Staunton, North West Development Director for Variety said: “Every year we remain so grateful for the support from Miller Homes, these Easter eggs make such a big difference to the children that our charity supports, and we’re so pleased that Miller Homes have chosen to partner with us to do this amazing thing.”

Around 100 of the eggs came from a donation from the homebuilder, with the rest being made up of contributions from the North West community, including over 100 from the Land Treasury office near to Miller Homes’ Blackfield Green development in Warton.

Locals were encouraged to drop Easter eggs off at their nearest Miller Homes developments in the North West, which spans from Congleton, up to Warton, including locations such as Clitheroe, Greater Manchester and Catterall.

Contributions included a number of different sized chocolatey treats, with considerate donors even giving gluten free eggs for the drive.

Clare Noakes, Sales Director for Miller Homes in the North West, said: “This is our sixth annual Easter Egg Drive for Variety, we even continued with our own donations through the pandemic restrictions.

“This year we were so delighted to welcome back locals to our sales centre to join us in our contributions, and they really did not disappoint.”
