Three of the housing developer’s most senior management staff also volunteered their time to serve hot food and wash dishes in the community café.
Mulbury Homes, based in Lymm in Cheshire, made the donation of £500 which will go towards a variety of community projects.
The centre, which also operates a food bank, provides a space for homeless people, rough sleepers and other vulnerable people to participate in training, arts and crafts and other social activities.
Mulbury Homes is currently developing affordable housing in Preston on land off New Hall Lane and decided to support The Foxton Centre as part of its Mulbury in the Community initiative.
Claire Morris, head of care at Mulbury Homes, said: “We were looking for good causes in Preston and when we heard about the excellent work of The Foxton Centre we were more than happy to offer our time and support.”
Mandy Stitt, of the Foxton Centre, added: “It was great to have the Mulbury team helping out in the kitchen, they got on brilliantly with our staff and customers. The donation is also very welcome and will go towards supporting the work we do to help people in Preston dealing with difficult times.”
The scheme at New Hall Lane will provide a mix of affordable housing and a 70-home extra-care facility aimed at older people in Preston.
