CHRISTMAS IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER…..
Let’s not forget the reason for this special day. It’s fun to celebrate with our friends and family. We have so much to be thankful for.
As a company we wanted to give back to those less fortunate than us. There are many people without a place to call home, a place of safety and a place of permanence.
In these difficult financial times much more homelessness is hidden, young people ‘sofa surfing’ constantly on the move; people squatting in very poor or derelict housing, whole families living in a friends’ spare rooms. What is clear is that Leeds and many other cities across the UK have increasing numbers of people without a place to call home.
Each person has a different story to tell and a different set of circumstances that has contributed to them becoming homeless. By working together, individuals and organisations can give people the support they need and the opportunity to rebuild their lives. Once this opportunity is grasped, individuals can feel empowered to develop their own resilience and confidence to break the negative cycle of homelessness.
This is why we chose St George’s Crypt as one of our Charities this year.
