Local charity receives £11,000 donation to help families in need

We’ve offered the community a helping hand by donating £11,000 to Alice Charity, located in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

Alice Charity provides essential support to vulnerable families in the Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent areas, helping families in crisis move towards a brighter future.

Based less than five miles from our Kiln Gate development in Stoke-on-Trent, the charity currently has a waitlist of urgent household items required by local families, including electric cookers, washing machines, fridge freezers, bed frames, mattresses, and bedding.

After meeting with the organisation, it was recognised that £9,000 was needed to help cover the costs for these crucially necessary items, and a further £2,000 has been donated towards the charity’s food bank initiative, People’s Pantry.

The items donated to families include electric cookers, beds, mattresses, bedding, washing machines, and more. Without access to such appliances, it leaves parents unable to provide basic needs to their families. The provision of these items is estimated to help 75 families based in Newcastle-under-Lyme – helping to improve both their mental health and physical health.

This People’s Pantry initiative was set up to ensure no child or family goes hungry, particularly during hard times. The donation will provide food to cover lunches for the most vulnerable local families during school holidays – such as October half-term and the Christmas season ahead. The charity has predicted that 125 families (200 adults and 350 children) will be positively affected by the funding and will also be supported with toys and presents for Christmas.

Stephanie Bradbury, Fundraising Manager at Alice Charity, said:

“This extremely generous donation from St. Modwen Homes, will make a huge difference to a lot of people in the local area who are in desperate need of support.

”We have noticed less donations in recent months due to the cost of living crisis, so support like this goes a long way as it allows us to provide essential household items and food parcels to those in the community who need them the most.”

James Mulcahy, Regional Managing Director (North) at St. Modwen Homes, said:

“It’s important to us that we offer vital support to the communities around our developments – and in this case, the residents of Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding areas. We hope the donation to Alice Charity makes a big difference by providing essential items for the people that the charity work so hard to help.”
