Winchester workers raise £3,000 for homeless charities
11:30am Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
STAFF from Winchester’s biggest employer have raised more than £3,000 for the city’s homeless.
A team of 16 Denplan workers took part in the Big Sleep Out in the Cathedral Close last month, swapping their beds for sleeping bags and raising funds for Trinity Winchester and Winchester Churches Nightshelter.
They raised more than £1,600 which was then matched by Denplan to create a total of £3,240.
Steve Gates, Denplan managing director, said: “For Denplan as a business, it’s important for us to help out in the community we’re based in. I’m very proud that our members of staff continuously get involved in charitable activities to help people in need in the area and hope our contributions will make a huge difference for the homeless in Winchester.”
Jessica Wheale, Trinity fundraising manager and event organiser, added: “We are delighted with the enthusiasm and spirit that the Denplan team showed. They have done a fantastic job raising money for both charities and we can’t thank them enough.”
