enact are proud to announce that we will be supporting the Yorkshire-based charity, Simon on the Streets, during 2018. Being a city centre business, homelessness is an issue our teams see the effects of every day and were keen to try and help with.
Simon on the Streets is an independent charity covering West Yorkshire, in particular Leeds, Bradford and Huddersfield. The charity supports the homeless community, in particular, entrenched rough sleepers. Funding is provided through the generosity of the public and from corporate support from businesses such as enact. The money they raise helps to fund outreach workers who support people to find aspirations and give unlimited opportunities to achieve sustainable positive change. Throughout the year, we will be working closely with this exceptional organisation to raise as much as we possibly can to support the people that need our help.
To kick off our fundraising efforts, we organised a bric-a-brac sale, sold SOTS merchandise and held events with a Valentine’s Day theme including our own version of the GBBO.
With more events planned as we head towards Easter – watch this space for further fundraising updates.
