A charity fighting homelessness is celebrating after receiving a £1000 donation from a leading national housebuilder.
Trinity Homeless Projects has received the grant from the Persimmon Homes North London Community Champions scheme to continue the important work they do with vulnerable individuals within Hillingdon and Slough.
The charity is the only one of its kind within a 20 mile radius and last year housed more than 240 people as well as helping over 100 others into training and employment.
Andy Robertson, from the charity said: “We’re overjoyed to have received this cash injection from Persimmon.
“The local community has always been extremely helpful in all of our fundraising endeavours, including our annual Big Sleep Out. All money raised goes directly to our cause helping to end homelessness in the community.”
“Our coaches and support workers provide one to one support to deal with the root causes of homelessness and help those effected move back to independent living.”
Claire Brooks-McGoldrick, Head of Sales for Persimmon Homes North London, said: “It’s great to see these funds going to support such a big community project. Trinity is providing a vital service to their clients and is making a real difference to people’s lives. I’m pleased that we are able to support at least a small part of this worthy project.”
“Other charities and community groups looking for funding to support their next big event or general day to day activities are encouraged to apply to the scheme which can provide up to £1000 match-funding to two winners every month.”
