Volunteers have distributed 50 emergency food packs to vulnerable people in Blackburn.
Aid 4 Ummah teamed up with homebuilder Miller Homes to donate packs including tinned foods, large cartons of long life fruit juices, biscuits, crisps, UHT milk and packet mixes.
Donations were also made to Hazeldene Care Home residents and users of Brammel House and the Salvation Army accommodation unit on Heaton Street.
The collaboration comes as the homebuilder brings new houses to the Blackburn area with its Millrose development, located on Lammack Road.
Clare Noakes, Sales Director for Miller Homes in the North West said: “We’re very impressed with the hard work of the Aid 4 Ummah volunteers and thank them for issuing our donations to those who needed it the most. We’re looking forward to working with the charity again very soon.”
Salim Masum Mulla, Country Director of Aid 4 Ummah added: “I’d like to give a big personal thanks to all of our volunteers, it was great to be able to provide crucial supplies to Hazeldene Care Homes and Brammel House. Even a small donation can make a huge difference to them.”
To celebrate Eid al-Adha, Miller Homes also plans to partner with Aid 4 Ummah to deliver chocolate gifts to the residents of Lammack and the wider Blackburn.
Millrose have launched a new development based on Lammack Road featuring 3 and 4 bedroom detached homes.
