Staff from the property and asset maintenance company CLC Group has raised more than £110,000 for End Youth Homelessness, (EYH) - a movement of charities supporting vulnerable young people across the UK. CLC Group was one of the first companies to sign up and support the movement as a national partner.
Staff pulled out all the stops to raise an amazing £60,000 through a series of events and CLC Group donated a further £50,000 to the cause.
Peter Armitage, Chairman at CLC Group, said:
“We are delighted to have exceeded our partnership target for End Youth Homelessness and we have had great fun doing it with plenty of fundraising happening across our offices.
It is really important to our staff to know that the funds make an impact in the communities in which they live and work, and we know that through End Youth Homelessness we have made a difference to the lives of vulnerable young people up and down the country.”
Seyi Obakin, CEO of the youth homelessness charity Centrepoint, which founded EYH, said:
“We owe all the staff at CLC Group a big thank you for all they have done for End Youth Homelessness.
Times have rarely been tougher for the most vulnerable young people, with more than 83,000 experiencing homelessness each year across the UK.
Their fantastic fundraising efforts will be felt across the country. The money raised will ensure that charities working in our communities can not only provide vulnerable young people with a safe place to stay, but also vital support in finding a job and a home, the two things young people need most of all to leave homelessness behind.”
