Homeless people will be getting extra help and support this year after staff and visitors to the Regus business centre at Breakspear Park, Hemel Hempstead 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 Hemel Hempstead centre was one of more than 100 Regus centres across the south of England taking part in the charity’s annual Woolly Hat Day at the end of January who together raised more than £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.
Regus UK chief executive John Spencer said: “We were really pleased our network of 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 of St Mungo’s added: “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.”
