A Nottingham’s St Albans team baked up a great idea to raise over £140 for Herts Young Homeless.
Colleagues at the building society made tasty cakes and buns and sold them to members of the public in their latest kind-hearted efforts for the local charity.
Jeremy Atkinson, The Nottingham’s Hertfordshire Cluster Manager, said: “Homelessness charities tend to have a lot of focus in the colder months of the year, however bringing awareness and vital funds to enable the good work to continue all year round is essential.”
St Albans Branch Manager, Vickie Hobbs, said: “It’s a pleasure to be working with such a great charity and helping give young people a better start in life. This is our second event for Herts Young Homeless and we plan further fundraising activities throughout the year.”
Earlier this year the branch gave Herts Young Homeless, who focus on the needs of 16 to 24-year-olds in Hertfordshire providing help, mediation and education so that they are less likely to experience homelessness, a cheque for £100 to assist them in their work.
Just £5 can pay for a travel warrant so a young person can get to appointments; £25 provides a bed for a night, preventing a young person from having to sleep rough, and £100 pays for a starter pack for a young person moving into their home for the first time.
