Local housebuilder Crest Nicholson has kickstarted its partnership with Norwich Foodbank, located close to its Cringleford Heights development, as part of the company’s commitment to support the wider community.


Employees from Crest Nicholson’s Eastern division recently set up a donation hub and is encouraging residents and members of the community to come forward and donate non-perishable, essential food and hygienic items the foodbank needs. The hub will be open for donations from Thursday – Monday during 10am-5pm at the development’s sales suite.  


Members of the team will then deliver these items to the foodbank, where they’ll be able to learn more about how the foodbank supports those in the local community with access to a variety of supplies when they are struggling. The donations will then be used to create nutritionally balanced 3-day food parcels.


Karen Coulson, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Eastern, said: “We are pleased to collaborate with Norwich Foodbank in offering crucial aid to individuals in our community who are experiencing hardship. Foodbanks are experiencing higher demands during the winter months, as the number of people and families in need of food and essential items continues to rise.”


“At Crest Nicholson, we’re committed to helping the wider community in Norwich and the surrounding areas; and are incredibly grateful for the work that the foodbank is doing to support those in crisis.”


Hannah Worsley, Project Manager at Norwich Foodbank, added: “We are very thankful to Crest Nicholson for their support to our foodbank. We’re always striving to ensure that our local community gets support at a time of crisis, so the donation of food is invaluable.

In the winter months, it’s key for us to get support from local businesses to ensure we can be there for our community when they really need us, so thank you again, Crest Nicholson.”
