The gift of giving
Every year, we are privileged to work with a wide range of local charities that do fantastic work in our communities and the festive period is no different.
This year we are getting behind Framework’s ‘Off the Streets’ campaign to help deliver emergency assistance across Nottingham as the temperatures fall. As well as making a donation from the business, we will be supporting the charity once again to host their street collections in branch to collect donations and raise awareness in December.
We have worked with the charity since 2011 doing everything from running marathons to sponsoring the charity’s flagship fundraiser, the Big Sleep Out.
Chief Executive David Marlow says ‘We’re incredibly proud of this partnership as they do some fantastic work in the city to not only help those that are homeless but also tackle the real causes of homelessness too.
‘Over the last five years our staff have fundraised £50,000 to go towards supporting almost 5,000 Skills Plus sessions.
‘This teaches how to live on a budget, prioritise spending, make the most out of resources and most importantly, have the confidence to be self-sufficient and move away from homelessness forever.
‘We know that homelessness is a complex problem – one that deserves a comprehensive solution.’
As well as Framework, our head office and Nottingham city branches are collecting Christmas Day items for a number of charities to be distributed across the city and our estate agency teams will be hoping to better their 135 shoe boxes full of goodies for local charities.
