On Wednesday 7th August 2019, SWWIC were hosted by Shekinah at their Stonehouse construction hub for an official handover of cheques to both Shekinah and Devon MIND (formally Plymouth MIND). Glayne Price, SWWIC Chair, thanked members for their continuing support in raising money to help support these worthy charities. SWWIC raised a grand total of £2,000 which was split between the two charities.
SWWIC were also introduced to the new ‘25 Collective’ initiative by Soo Brizell. ‘… The 25 Collection is a group of local businesses supporting the end of homelessness by becoming a key partner and together raising a minimum £25,000 for Shekinah to support a number of people who are homeless and their progression out of rough sleeping and into their own home, with their own job and their own life….’
She was also very proud to announce the first two adoptees of the scheme as Obedair and The Building Forum with members of both being in attendance.
