This year we decided to raise money for Herts Young Homeless where we raised £10,157 for them from our charity luncheon at Vicarage Road and other fundraising events throughout the year.
CEO Helen Elliot stated “Such an incredible amount will fund an entire package of Advice, Crashpad, Mediation and Floating Support for up to 10 16-year-olds who have been made homeless,”.
Anna, who is co-ordinator of our service- user volunteer project iPro spoke eloquently at the Luncheon about her experience of homelessness which moved some of her audience to tears.
Alongside the money we had raised we were able to donate starter pack which included a toaster, kettle and bedding for one of Herts young homeless users who was going to move into her accommodation.
“We are delighted to be able to help this great local charity continue its work which makes such a positive difference to people’s lives,” said Grant Franklin, Managing Principal of Hillier Hopkins.
“This wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible generosity of the clients and friends of Hillier Hopkins”.
