Helping the homeless in Mansfield

Posted onPosted on 23rd Jan

A Mansfield business has donated warm winter fleeces, jackets and polo shirts to a homeless charity.

Pellacraft, a business gifts, promotional merchandise and branded workwear supplier, has also given £1,000 towards Framework’s Off The Streets Campaign, which aims to help the charity continue its life-changing work to engage, rehouse, rehabilitate and reconnect people who have been made homeless.

Pellacraft director Samantha Pella said: “Framework and other homeless charities desperately need and appreciate support from businesses that are willing to organise fundraising initiatives, take part in arranged events or simply make financial donations.

“Pellacraft has supported Framework for a number of years and as a workwear supplier we were able to do something slightly different by sourcing winter jackets, fleeces and polo shirts that we could donate.”

Olivia Wood, Framework corporate fundraiser, pictured (left) with Samantha, added: “Framework runs a number of appeals throughout the year and has been working closely with Pellacraft to ensure its support can help our most crucial projects.

“The provision of clean, warm clothing as part of the Off The Streets campaign, is an important aspect of helping the homeless rebuild their lives.”

The clothing will be handed out on a gradual basis at the Sherwood Street Centre, Mansfield, to the 15 people who live there and to other homeless people who come into contact with the service.
