Crisis at Christmas
Following last year’s successful charity cleans, we are once again supporting homeless charity, Crisis, by providing free cleaning services at several of its centres in London over the Christmas period.
Our recycling partner, First Mile, is also providing free collections of recycling and waste from London shelters.
Crisis is the national charity for single homeless people and is dedicated to ending homelessness by delivering life-changing services and campaigning for change. Crisis at Christmas 2015 runs from 23 to 30 December. Over 10,000 volunteers will help more than 4,000 homeless guests across the UK. As well as warmth, companionship and hot meals, guests in London, Birmingham, Newcastle, Coventry and Edinburgh will receive healthcare and specialist advice on a range of services including housing, work and benefits.
“Through your invaluable support and generosity this Christmas we have been able to offer our guests the opportunity to have respite from their often difficult lives, enjoy warmth, safety and companionship, nutritious hot meals and a varied programme of entertainments and activities. Our Centres have been places of engagement, comfort and interaction for our guests enabling them to enjoy their Christmas with dignity and in a place that makes them feel valued. Without your help all of this would not have been possible; I cannot thank you enough on behalf of The Crisis Christmas Team.”
Our sales and marketing director, Marcus Heap, added:“You cannot underestimate the importance of the support Crisis provides to improve the lives of those in need. We believe that everyone deserves a clean and healthy environment over Christmas and are delighted to be able to provide our specialist support.”
