Housebuilder helps brighten holidays with donation to Crisis at Christmas

Crisis, the national charity for homeless people, has received a £500 donation towards its Crisis at Christmas campaign from independent housebuilder Dandara.

The donation to the appeal will help Crisis to provide much-needed warm meals, shelter and support to those experiencing homelessness in Scotland this Christmas.

Alongside this, the Dandara team also hosted a bake sale and ran an office raffle to raise vital funds for the charity. With the money raised from the events, the team have donated an additional £315 which will go towards providing items such as bedding, clothing, mobile phone top ups, entertainment and toiletries.

With around 32,240 households in Scotland assessed as homeless or threatened to be homeless, the donation from Dandara will help to provide even more support for homeless people in Scotland this Christmas.

Julie Sutton, Fundraising Manager at Crisis, commented: “Thanks to contributions like Dandara’s, we can help support those facing homelessness throughout the Christmas holidays by offering clothing, hot food and support. Every donation makes a big difference in our goal of ending homelessness in Scotland and throughout the UK.”

Tony Williamson, Director of Sales at Dandara East Scotland, said: “Dandara is proud to contribute to Crisis at Christmas, supporting their mission to end homelessness. Our team organised a successful bake sale and raffle, raising additional funds that allowed us to donate even more than anticipated to the charity. We hope that our donation will make a meaningful impact in supporting those facing homelessness this Christmas.”
