Higgins and Groundworks and Framework Specialist, Modebest have been working closely with the local community this month at its Bath Road site in Hounslow by collecting much needed food donations for the local foodbank at St Pauls Church.
The foodbank exists to provide local individuals and families who find themselves in financial difficulty by providing them with a food parcel including the basic essentials. Many individuals and families may hit financial hardship due to a number of reasons and by providing food during a time of crisis allows some of the pressures to be alleviated.
Amy Ross, Head of Social Value at Higgins comments, “”We are extremely committed to working in the local community around our sites and are pleased to have been able to provide much needed donations to the foodbank in time for Christmas, a time which can often be hard for many.”
Higgins is building 176 much needed affordable homes for A2Dominion at Bath Road. The £40 million project on the site of the former Morrisons will help meet the housing demand in the borough by providing an 100% affordable housing scheme featuring 83 homes for affordable rent and 93 properties for Shared Ownership.
