Glass Door is our current 'Charity of the Year' for 2020.
Here at Freehold Managers PLC we raise money throughout the year for an employee chosen charitable cause. This choice is usually driven by personal connections and associations; once again this is true of our 2020 charity.
At the beginning of the year staff agreed to spearhead a fundraising campaign for Glass Door Homeless Charity who are an independent charity that receives no funding, they not only save lives by providing refuge from the cold, they also help their guests build more stable futures.
About 170 individuals sleep in a Glass Door shelter every night in winter, making Glass Door, London’s largest open-access network of emergency winter shelters and support services for men and women affected by homelessness. Their vision “to get—and stay—off the street” is a world where no one must sleep on the streets of London. They believe that everyone has inherent dignity and they welcome those who turn to them.
They do not require guests to fill in a long and complicated form or prove they have a local connection to gain access to their services. Guests of their emergency shelters receive a warm welcome, a hot supper and a breakfast in the morning, cooked and served by volunteers. These free services are a lifeline to those who would otherwise be sleeping on the street.
As an independent charity that receives no funding that impedes their open access policy, it is thanks to the support of individuals, partners, churches, community groups, businesses, trusts and foundations that they can continue to provide shelter and support to those who need it most.
Freehold Managers PLC have an active fundraising schedule of events to help raise money for Glass Door, baking contests, Quizzes, obstacle courses and the main event is our annual charity auction/raffle.
