Many homeless people will be getting extra help and support this year thanks to the generosity and goodwill of the West Sussex communities and global workplace provider Regus.
Staff and visitors to the Regus business centres at the Pinnacle in Crawley, Worthing Road in Horsham and Gatwick Airport donned a woolly hat and raised money for St Mungo’s, one of Britain’s largest charities supporting people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in London and the South.
The West Sussex centres are part of a network of over 100 Regus centres across the south of England which took part in the charity’s annual ‘Woolly Hat Day’ (held on 31st January) and collectively raised over £3,000. The money raised will help St Mungo’s to continue supporting homeless people to rebuild their lives away from homelessness, including job training and employment advice, education projects, counselling and support with health issues.
John Spencer, CEO of Regus in the UK, said: “We were really pleased our local network of Regus centres in London and the South could help by taking part in ‘Woolly Hat Day’ and raise vital funds for such an important cause. We extend our thanks to everyone who got involved and made donations to St Mungo’s.”
Christine Mortensen, Head of Fundraising at St Mungo’s, said: “Hats off to Regus for a great team effort by their centres who had a lot of fun whilst helping make a difference to the lives of homeless people.”
Regus operates a global network of flexible, modern work spaces including business lounges, meeting rooms and touch-down desks. See www.regus.co.uk or www.woollyhatday.org.uk
