East Durham Homes raises cash for homelessness charity Centrepoint
A HOUSING association has raised £1,350 for the homelessness charity Centrepoint.
East Durham Homes staff did things including dress down days, sponsored walks, tombolas, raffles, cake sales and quizzes.
Area Manager for Centrepoint, Jennifer Tennant, and Regional Fundraiser, Lindsay Peach, were presented with a cheque at East Durham Homes’ Annual General Meeting held on Thursday 26 September.
Centrepoint provides a safe place to live for more than 1,000 young people, aged 16 to 25 in London and the North- East.
It also helps 600 young people live independently with health programmes, life skills and learning opportunities.
East Durham Homes chairman Paul Morgan, who adopted Centrepoint as his charity, said: “It gives me great pleasure to present a cheque for £1,350 to Centrepoint.
“Unfortunately, as a company, we see first-hand the devastating effects of homelessness and how much needs to be done, so we hope the money we have raised will help.”
Jennifer Tennant from Centrepoint thanked the association and said: “The money raised will help us support young homeless people in the North East.”
