Greenwell Gleeson have committed to supporting St Basils this year, having chosen them as their chosen Charity of the Year for 2022.
Greenwell Gleeson have kicked off our fundraising efforts by asking members who attend their breakfast networking events to make a voluntary £5 donation to the St Basils £5 appeal. ST Basil’s accommodate 590 young people every night in their 42 accommodation schemes across the West Midlands, and currently are short of £5 a day per young person staying in one of their projects. Every £5 Greenwell Gleeson raises will help St Basils support each young person out of homelessness and transform their life.
On top of this, at our last breakfast networking event, we asked people to bring in donations from the St Basils wish list – contributing £100 in cleaning products and toiletries as well as £60 (+£15 gift aid) donations, which equates to 15 young people supported by their business network.
Sian Dhillon of St Basils says: ”We are honoured to be working again with Birmingham’s longest established, independently owned, accountancy & finance recruitment firm Greenwell Gleeson. Being one of the most trusted names in their industry and as their ‘ pick your personal mug’ wall and charity commitments demonstrates, they are a team that not only cares about those they work with but also the region they operate in as a whole. Employability is a priority for many of the young people St Basils works with, having specialist support from our local business community is extremely valuable and needed. We are very grateful to them.”
