Pick Everard announce Charity of the Year Total

Pick Everard announce Charity of the Year Total.

The Leicester office of Pick Everard, a property and construction consultant, has announced that they have raised £4331.12 for their Charity of the Year 2018, Action Homeless.

Staff at the Pick Everard office raised funds through activities such as dress down Fridays and a summer cycling sportive, which saw staff raise over £1990 by undertaking a 30 or 70-mile bike ride through the Leicestershire countryside.

Part of the funds have helped support the Action Homeless Food Stop, with Pick Everard completing 3 ASDA orders up to a value of £550 to help keep the shelves stocked with essentials in a year that an estimated 9000 days worth of food was given out to over 2000 customers. The remainder of the money raised will be put towards our work to provide accommodation and support to people experiencing homelessness in the city and county.

Last year the Action Homeless accommodated 408 people but received over 800 referrals for housing. The funds raised by Pick Everard will help Action Homeless to meet the demand for affordable and specialist housing projects in the city.
