Together + Soup Kitchen
Posted on Thursday, December 15th, 2016
Greater Manchester and London based Together Property Management have made a significant financial donation to homeless support group Coffee4Craig, as the Manchester based homeless support network begin their next round of raising funds from corporate sponsors.
Together, who manage in excess of 10,000 properties throughout the United Kingdom, have made the donation to Coffee4Craig to be used towards paying deposits for people to enter homes, purchasing much needed items such as sleeping bags and toiletries and to contribute towards general running costs.
Coffee4Craig, founded in 2013 by Hendrix and Risha Lancaster, run multiple city centre coffee and food kitchens and also support the homeless in multiple ways including distributing clothes and paying and contributing towards both full-time and temporary accommodation costs for the Manchester homeless community. Their provision includes the Not Just Soup kitchen which has seen multiple local restaurants provide high-quality food including Neighbourhood, Hawksmoor, Lunya and Australasia.
“Coffee4Craig are an incredible organisation and we were blown away by the work they are doing with Manchester’s homeless community which has a massive influence in helping people back into society. Our staff have helped serve food at their street kitchens which has enabled us to see the positive impact that they are having and the camaraderie and relationships they have with their service users is really special.”- Tim Roberts, Together Property Management.
“The donation from Together Property Management is amazing and is already being used towards paying people’s deposits and placing them in homes. The support from the corporate sector is very important in allowing us to help the region’s homeless people and we cannot thank Together and their staff enough for their contribution” – Risha Lancaster, Coffee4Craig.
