Springfield Properties employees, rallied together to donate food to Bo’ness Storehouse food bank.

Housebuilder Springfield Properties encouraged staff to bring canned goods, toiletries and cleaning products into the office, which were donated to the Storehouse food bank in Bo’ness.

Founded in 2012 by Mike Munro after witnessing first hand the success of a food bank in St Andrews, the Bo’ness Storehouse Food bank supports around 20 families each week. He said: 

“Like most charities, we rely solely on donations. With the number of families needing our support constantly creeping up, we need them now more than ever.

“We are really grateful for the donation made by all the staff at Springfield Properties, it will help make a difference to the people of Bo’ness who rely on our support.”

In 2017, the developers of private and affordable homes in Scotland, started work on 30 affordable homes off Cadzow Avenue, in Bo’ness. Springfield Assistant Project Manager, Bobby Malek, has said:

“It’s great to see volunteer groups like Storehouse Food Bank working in the community, to support those in need in the area.

“We look for opportunities to engage with the community in towns where we are building new homes. Sometimes we visit schools for health and safety talks, other times we sponsor kids sports teams, on this occasion, we gathered food for the local food bank, and we’re glad to be able to contribute and help the food bank.”
