A Helping Hand For Young People at Christmas: Basset & Gold Is Supporting Centrepoint
This season, aware of so many people facing Christmas on the streets in the city in which we work, we decided to buy two Christmas success boxes from Centrepoint, the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity.
The Centrepoint Christmas success box is a lifeline for young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. It’s a year-round package providing a young person with a room to live in for a whole year, a study kit and a proper Christmas dinner at a time of year when they could otherwise find themselves alone and hungry. Having somewhere safe to stay and the tools to begin or complete an education could set a vulnerable young person on their way to escaping homelessness forever.
Daniel Smith, Director at Basset & Gold Plc, commented, “The plight of the homeless is something we are reminded of daily. We are honoured to be supporting a key charity working with young homeless people to get them resettled back into the community and giving them a helping hand”
