Goddard Perry in the Community
GPC we like to keep in touch with the local community. Three ladies here at GPC; Yvonne Douglas, Alison Brench & Emma Warren took part in the Sleep Out With Evolve Housing at Croydon Box Park on Sunday 24 March 2019. They raised a fantastic £2800 between them for the charity which helps homeless people off the streets and into positive, independent lives.
There were over 150 people who volunteered to take part in the challenge and the atmosphere was uplifiting with people from all walks of life coming together to help people less fortunate than themselves.
The staff and GPC donated generously towards the cause to help support their colleagues. We arranged a raffle whereby local Croydon businesses donated some great prizes including 2 European mini-breaks. Neighbouring businesses bought raffle tickets which helped build the donations and contributed to building relations in the local working community.
The impact of the Sleep Out challenge has been incredible for not only for the homelessness but has also contributed to creating a positive work environment by encouraging social interaction and positive communication among colleagues inside and outside GPC.
