Help the Homeless this Winter Charity Campaign
KpH Group are excited to announce that our “Help the Homeless this Winter” campaign raised a tremendous £810.00 for the homeless charity The Passage. We also collected 20 large bags of clothes, warm blankets, shoes, trainers, food and toiletries to donate to their “walk-in” Resource Centre in London, Victoria.
Emily Richmond from The Passage was kind enough to contact us on behalf of the charity to express her appreciation for our donation and support. She stated that “£21.00 pays for our trained experts to give a homeless person much needed advice on anything from housing, mental health, CV writing or substance misuse issues. Meaning your donation will enable us to help over 38 individuals.”
Being able to help 38 people is an amazing achievement and we would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to all our suppliers, colleagues, friends and family who made donations and supported the cause, including: Rhino Waste, Westminster Waste, L.I.S Group, Eton Environmental Group, Kitts Scaffolding and DSM Recruitment Services.
A special mention must also go to Darron Denham and the Project Team at 66 Shoe Lane, who managed to raise an incredible £155.00 by arranging lunchtime ping pong tournaments. You must let us know who won Darron 😊
Having been inspired by our experience with The Passage we are now looking at other ways that we can support their cause. We hope to soon be discussing the possibility of offering work placements to those within their care that are struggling to get back into work. We can offer a friendly, supportive environment teaching keen individuals a new trade on our Strip Out and Enabling sites, whilst giving them an opportunity to regain their financial stability.
The Passage has kindly invited us back to the Resource Centre again to see how our donations will be used to improve people’s lives, so we look forward to providing you with further updates on this throughout the year.
