A HOME builder in Widnes has donated Easter eggs to needing children.

Miller Homes handed over more than 50 eggs and chocolates to the children of Variety North West with the help of generous residents.

Lyn Staunton, north west development director at Variety, said:“We were overwhelmed with the kindness shown to Variety.

"We could not believe we received so many chocolate eggs and we knew without a doubt that they would change a lot of children’s Easters – putting a smile on their faces!

"We are so very grateful for the help to give the children a much happier Easter.”

Samantha Johnson, sales director for Miller Homes in the north west, said:“It was a pleasure to work with Variety once more and to help their children in need have an enjoyable Easter.

"We are so appreciative of everyone who came together to donate – these individual acts of kindness have made such a difference to these children’s holidays.

"Receiving Easter eggs may be a given at this time of year but for the children supported by Variety this is not always the case.

"These donations have had a huge impact on the children and we are proud to be a part of it.”

Variety is a charity helping disabled, sick and disadvantaged children across the region.

Originally founded in America in 1927, its success was brought to the UK in 1949. As one of the UK’s first charities of its kind, Variety aims to improve young lives every day, helping children to not be defined by their circumstances.
