St Basils – 2019
Back in June 2019, the employees of Kalamazoo IT selected St Basils, who work with young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, as their new charity partner. Through various fund-raising initiatives and taking part in events, we managed to raise a total of £882.38 in just 7 months.
Thank you to everyone that has supported our chosen charity of the year. This couldn’t have been achieved without all of your generosity and thoughtfulness. I know that St Basils really appreciate our support.
Thank you all for donating your loose change over the past few months. What started out as the ‘10p challenge’ worktop (commenced in July) soon became the ‘chuck whatever you’ve got in’ change box. Due to your generosity, this has helped raise £111.13. This is now back in place and ready to be refilled, let’s keep it going.
Big Birmingham Sleepout
We managed to raise over £700 including gift aid, smashing our target! Your donations made this happen.
A special thanks to Lydia & Heena for enduring that very cold night in Birmingham City centre, great effort!
“We want young people to feel cared about, have trusted support and somewhere safe and affordable to live, that enables them to learn and work.”
I hope you will all join me in continuing our support for St Basils through fundraising and taking part in their 2020 events – Keep your eye out for these here > https://stbasils.org.uk/events/
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
