YHN has supported Crisis, the homeless charity for single people that has a base on City Road in Newcastle, for several years.
As Crisis is our current corporate charity, we organised a day of activities to help support them and the really important work they do at Christmas to help some of the most vulnerable people in our city.
There was a Christmas quiz that everyone had to pay to enter and we held a big “wrapathon” event to wrap the many, MANY presents donated by generous staff and customers. We also donated food and clothing, all of which was delivered to the Crisis Christmas team this week.
This year we’ve also raised almost £4,000 by sponsoring colleagues to do adventurous things like zip lines across the River Tyne, a Ben Nevis Triathlon and the Great North Run and we’ve also supported the charity by providing storage space and transport options at important times of the year.
We’d like to wish our partners at Crisis and all of their members and very Merry Christmas and a happy new year from all at YHN.
