Nottingham charity Crash renovate homeless accommodation
15 April 2016
A team of volunteers from British Gypsum has been helping Nottingham-based homelessness charity, HOPE Community Services, put the finishing touches to its new move-on accommodation.
Using donations of materials from fellow CRASH patrons, Buildbase and Dulux Trade, the volunteers decorated six bedrooms, which will provide much needed shelter for those who are ready to take the next step back to independence.
HOPE’s CEO, Alan Diggles, said: “Homelessness has doubled in the last three years, and local services are under pressure with austerity biting hard. Without the support of organisations like CRASH, British Gypsum, Buildbase and Dulux Trade, and their willingness to help charities like HOPE, more people in crisis would have nowhere to go.”
British Gypsum is a patron and proactive supporter of the work carried out by the UK’s construction and property industry’s charity addressing the needs of hospices and homelessness organisations, CRASH.
