Since joining forces with St Mungo’s, we’ve led an amalgamation of work to support ending homelessness. This has included volunteering, training, collaborative events, but also and crucially, fundraising. To continue to provide their much-needed services and put an end to homelessness, vital funds are needed. This makes fundraising for St Mungo’s an important part of our partnership.
While we believe that giving our time and expertise to our charity partner is invaluable, it’s so important to raise sufficient funds that can really help and make a difference. These often go towards vital resources and services that provide support and help people to move away from rough sleeping.
ArcelorMittal Orbit Abseil
We’ve been thinking outside of the box in terms of fundraising events. Our brave and inspiring teams have gone above and beyond to raise money, including abseiling off of the ArcelorMittal Orbit in London from 262ft. Our colleagues tackled the challenge head-on on 2nd June 2023, raising £920 from this event alone.
Take the Lead
Our August challenge, ‘Take the Lead’ saw some of our Regular Cleaning mascots take on the distance of a sponsored marathon (26 miles) or an ultra-marathon (50 miles) throughout the month of August. Pixie alone (left) raised £125, earning a St Mungo’s bandana to wear on walks.
Our charity football game on 15th September, saw twelve teams taking part in a tournament to raise money and awareness for the homelessness charity. This event was a huge success, with many of our clients and partners forming teams to collaboratively support this cause.
Events like this one not only raise funds to support homelessness, but also raise awareness. Collaborative events like this one inspire conversations and knowledge sharing around the issues surrounding homlessness in the UK. This can lead to even more people getting involved and working together to end rough sleeping.
We’ve got a variety of projects and events planned for the Christmas period to continue our commitment to fundraising for St Mungo’s. Since 2018, we have committed to volunteering and fundraising events over the period.
Some of the events planned this year include cooking meals, decorating some of St Mungo’s services and a Christmas gift appeal to give our colleagues the chance to donate gifts that we’ve wrapped up together. To start the new year right, we also have a London Winter Walk planned in January to bring our fundraising efforts straight into 2024.
