Four months in and £4,000 generated already means our employees are set to beat their £10,000 target well before the April 2013 deadline. With events bringing in the pennies - the most successful being the Star War’s bingo and Summer Fete - the hard work of HomeLet’s Charity Committee, and the generous contribution of employees is paying off.
We still have £6,000 to raise - meaning the next eight months will see the office arrange even more money-making events. The Olympic themed office bingo and quiz are set to bring 2012’s sporting spirit to HomeLet. Intercompany football matches will also unleash employees’ competitiveness, while raising lots of money for The Nomad Trust.
With the Nomad Trust being recognised by HomeLet as an important part of Lincoln’s community, support is set to continue until 2014. Working to the ethos of giving back to the local community, we're very pleased to support the The Nomad Trust to offer homeless people in the area emergency shelter, safety and the opportunity to change service users’ lives for the better.
Ian Fraser, HomeLet’s Managing Director, said: ‘Lincoln is HomeLet’s home. It is our community and we make sure we work together as a company to give something back to the area. The Nomad Trust is a local charity focused on the vulnerable in the locality, offering shelter and warmth where many need it most. Supporting those who are less fortunate in our local community is all part of the ethos at HomeLet. We’re delighted to be ahead of our fundraising target as it means we can donate even more to this worthy cause than last year.”
Brenda Shiels, said: ‘Having HomeLet support us is an honour. Any amount of money raised is a real help, and HomeLet continues to surprise us with such generous donations. All cash contributes to the improvements to accommodation, the development of facilities and day to day running costs of the charity so we can continue to support homeless people in the local area. HomeLet’s continued support is something we are very grateful for.”
