MILLER Homes North East is looking to bring smiles to the faces of disadvantaged and poorly children across the region by bringing back the Miller Homes Easter Egg Drop for its second year.

Following its huge success in 2016 which saw over 400 Easter eggs donated to local children’s charities, providing a special surprise to youngsters, the leading housebuilder is now collecting chocolate Easter eggs and looking to beat last year’s total.

Easter egg donations from members of the public, as well as a donation from Miller Homes, will be shared between the Sunshine Fund in Newcastle, Action for Children in Bedlington and Home Start in Teesside, to be distributed to children who benefit from the services of these charities.

Donations of chocolate Easter eggs can be dropped off at any of Miller Homes’ sales centres in the North East until 5:30pm on Sunday 09 April 2017.

Andrew Somerville, regional sales manager at Miller Homes North East, said: “We launched the Miller Homes Easter Egg Drop last year in the hopes of bringing communities together through a kind act for charity, and were overwhelmed by the generosity of the general public and our suppliers.

“Due to the success of last year we couldn’t not launch our appeal again for 2017, and would 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 the Sunshine Fund, Action for Children and Home Start, 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. 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 Sunday 09 April 2017.
