Dairy Crest's milk&more milkmen and customers help raise over £50,000 for The Prince's Countryside Fund


Dairy Crest is delighted to announce that a fundraising campaign to help raise money for its charity partner, The Prince’s Countryside Fund, has exceeded its target of £50,000. This money will go towards the important work the Fund does to help rural causes, including helping children across the UK learn more about where food and drink comes from and why the countryside matters. The money was raised through generous donations made by doorstep customers via Dairy Crest’s doorstep delivery service milk&more.

Dairy Crest announced a year ago that milk&more had chosen The Prince’s Countryside Fund as an official charity partner. As well as raising money for the charity the milkmen have also been busy promoting the fantastic work carried out by the Fund to their 650,000 doorstep customers.

Mark Allen, Dairy Crest’s CEO and a trustee of The Prince’s Countryside Fund said:

“I am delighted that our doorstep customers have dug deep to help the vital work the Fund carries out to help protect our countryside and rural communities. Having worked with the Fund for a long time, I know £50,000 will make a real difference to their programmes. I would like to thank all of our customers, milkmen and the milk&more team for their part in what has been a tremendously successful campaign.”

Claire Saunders, Director, The Prince’s Countryside Fund said:

“This fantastic achievement wouldn’t have been possible without the huge support we’ve received from the whole milk&more team and the incredible generosity of their customers. The countryside is one of our most valuable national assets and the donations we’ve received from milk&more customers will enable us to provide much needed support to the people across the UK that are working tirelessly to secure a sustainable future for our rural communities for future generations.”

Dairy Crest’s doorstep delivery service milk&more is celebrating the British tradition of the milkman by launching a national competition to find milk&more’s Milkman of the Year.  Voting can be done in one of three ways;

Voting closes on the 12th September and the results will be announced in November.
