Colleagues at parcel carrier Yodel’s Liverpool head office have donated £1,500 to The Whitechapel Centre to support people who are homeless living in the area. The collection was organised by Gemma Downey, Facilities and Engineering Manager at Yodel, and the Albert Pavilion Communications team. The donation included raffle prizes given by Yodel’s suppliers and other local businesses.
The Whitechapel Centre aims to prevent and resolve homelessness, social exclusion and housing poverty by providing practical, realistic, tailored support so that each person can find a route out of homelessness, maintain a home and achieve their individual potential.
Gemma Downey, Facilities and Engineering Manager at Yodel, said: “Gathering all the donations was a team effort, designed to support those in need in the wider Liverpool community. It has been rewarding to see all the colleagues getting involved in our appeal - the response has been amazing.
“We hope that our efforts will make a difference to the local community, and we look forward to working with the charity again in the future.”
Julianna Petkovic, Corporate Fundraiser at The Whitechapel Centre, said: “We were so pleased to receive such a fantastic donation from the Yodel team in Liverpool. The winter is such a difficult time for our clients and the support from Yodel will go a long way to improving their situation.”
