Fundraise for a homeless charity as part of your office celebrations The staff, volunteers and companions all know each other so well that it’s like having a second family. We put up decorations around the communal areas and some of the Chef companions put together a delicious three course dinner for us. It wasn’t quite the same as spending the day with my loved ones, but the atmosphere was lovely and it helped make the day a positive one.”
Such celebrations are only made possible through the generous support of the public. The charity funds its work by selling preloved and upcycled items in its stores, all of which are collected through donations.
Long-time volunteer, Anita Clark, says, “We need donations throughout the year but particularly so at Christmas time. We’re always keen to receive any unwanted items that can be sold on as gifts. Games, puzzles, high quality toys and unopened toiletries are hugely appreciated.
