WBRC supports St Mungo’s on No Second Night Out Initiative
Last month, a very enthusiastic and motivated team of volunteers from our Major Developments team and the Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company supported St Mungo’s on their No Second Night Out (NSNO) initiative. They donated their time and skills to help refurbish NSNO’s accommodation which is used to temporarily house people who are sleeping rough for the first time to prevent them from having to spend a second night out on the streets.
The 28 volunteers included directors, managers, assistants, PAs and admin staff. They painted, cleaned and stencilled the accommodation to help make it more comfortable for those using the centre in the future.
Major Developments Managing Director, Lee Bishop commented: “We all had a great day and the personal satisfaction of giving a little back is fantastic. It is great that the Company lets us all volunteer up to four half days (or two full days) paid volunteering leave per year. More TW staff could organise this through their Charity Committee Reps.”
Assistant Project Manager, Thalita Ferizolla, a TW Major Developments representative at WBRC, organised the event and said: “For nearly 50 years, St Mungo’s has been at the forefront of efforts to tackle homelessness. Their work helps to prevent homelessness and support people at every step of their recovery from homelessness. They’ve counted on this large and brilliant team and were very impressed with their motivation and willingness to help others and above all, to make a difference.”
