It’s always a pleasure to meet up with the hard working team at The Wallich and hear of the thousands of people that their support programmes reach. With the current cost of living crisis the need for their services seems to be on the increase and whilst it’s targeted at those caught in the cycle of homelessness it’s also focussed on those at risk as energy and rent costs rise across Wales.
Liz Maher, Centurion Director, met with Will Henson – Chair of Trustees at the charity in Cardiff today and passed on a Christmas contribution of £200 to help support them. “We’ve supported The Wallich for a decade now – doing what we can – quiz’s – donations at Christmas etc to help raise funds and awareness of the amazing job they do to prevent homelessness as well as helping people out of homelessness” said Liz. “It’s about doing what you can – however small you might think that action is – as together we all can make a difference to the community we live and work in.”
As Michael Cowley their Head of Income Generation wrote to us later:
“We are so grateful to the team at Centurion VAT for their ongoing support and generous donation of £200 to support people experiencing homelessness in our community. It has been an extremely tough few years and the current cost of living crisis is taking a heavy toll on households across Wales, placing more people at risk of homelessness. Our services provide tailored support for anyone experiencing, or at risk of homelessness, to help them avoid crisis and build towards the future they want. None of this would be possible without the kindness and generosity of our community of supporters which is why your gift is so important. Thank you for your continued support and for being part of a community of people, determined to prevent and end homelessness for good.”
