Masthaven has raised over £3,000 for Depaul UK, the homelessness charity which supports people aged 16-25.
The partnership supports the specialist bank with its aim to become a fully ‘human business’ and make a significant contribution to society.
On top of the £3,000 raised through a prize draw at a recent awards event, Masthaven has raised a number of donations during various industry events, where it encouraged brokers to donate to Depaul.
The bank has worked alongside the charity for a number of years and in 2016, Jon Hall, managing director at Masthaven (pictured above), joined the ‘CEO sleepout’, which saw him swap his bed for a sleeping bag for a night to raise awareness of homelessness.
“We’ve already met with the Depaul team on several occasions and have seen first-hand the important work they’re involved in,” said Jon.
“Individual giving is important, but there’s an awful lot that businesses can do too, and we can’t wait to continue our work with the organisation to help raise awareness of homelessness and support young people to find stable housing.”
Annie Hall, corporate partnerships manager at Depaul, added: “We are grateful to all those who attended and helped us to raise over £3,000.
“This will enable us to reach more young people who so vitally need our support and accommodation services, ensuring they have a safe place to stay.”
