Miller Homes North East is collecting chocolate Easter eggs to donate to local children’s charities, providing a special surprise to youngsters who may not receive a treat this Easter.

Donations, from both members of the public and Miller Homes, made during the Miller Homes Easter Egg Drop will be shared between the Sunshine Fund in Newcastle, Action for Children in Bedlington and Home Start in Teesside.

Andrew Somerville, regional sales manager at Miller Homes North East, said: “We are committed to supporting the local communities which surround our developments and we’re excited to be launching the Miller Homes Easter Egg Drop in support of the Sunshine Fund, Action for Children and Home Start.

“To help our campaign, we’d very much appreciate if local members of the community would be so kind as to buy just one extra Easter egg which we will donate to these great causes, who do fantastic work in the north east.”

Easter egg donations can be dropped off at the sales centres at any of Miller Homes’ north east developments including The Acres in Bedlington, Wheatfields in Seaton Delaval, Portland Wynd in Blyth, and Heritage Green in Backworth.

Sales centres are open Mondays from 12.30pm to 5.30pm and Thursdays to Sundays from 10.30am to 5.30pm.

All donations must be made by 5.30pm on March 21.
