Network Homes gets its kit on to raise money for bowel cancer
On 27 April we held a fun ‘Football Shirt Friday‘ event raising over £360 for bowel cancer research, adding to our already impressive charitable giving portfolio.
Our teams in our Wembley and Hertford branches donated to proudly wear their football shirts for the day supporting the Bobby Moore Fund and Cancer Research UK which help to further life-saving bowel cancer research. To raise even more for the charity, we went a step further and organised a football quiz and a keepy uppy competition which saw a number of staff make further generous donations.
Chief Executive, Helen Evans said, "We are very pleased to have raised over £360 for the Bobby Moore Fund and Cancer Research UK. Network Homes is a social business at heart and we believe in giving something back to the communities we work in, so this is a great example of donating to a valuable cause that will help benefit many people."
Here at Network Homes we have supported many charities over the years and we work closely with homeless charity New Horizon Youth Centre (NHYC). Our partnership with NHYC on Project Vista, a programme that helps homeless youth become self-sufficient, was awarded first place at the 2017 London Homelessness Awards. Meanwhile a team of Network Homes cyclists recently raised over £65,000 for St. Mungo's by cycling from London to Paris.
