Worthing Business Helps Homeless Charity Christmas Appeal
Local company Electronic Temperature Instruments Ltd (ETI) were delighted to pledge their support to Turning Tides charity by donating £3,000 towards their ‘Christmas Is Not Cancelled’ appeal.
Based in Worthing, ETI are aware of the issues that affect homeless individuals in the town and surrounding areas so when it came to collaborating with a local charity, Turning Tides was the obvious choice. Surviving on the street this winter will be a huge challenge for some men and women and many are facing homelessness for the first time, as Covid takes away jobs and livelihoods. The money donated will help to provide turkeys and all the trimmings for volunteers at Turning Tides to cook and deliver. In addition to food and festivities, their frontline keyworkers will provide practical and emotional support throughout the festive period - and beyond into the new year.
Abbi Last, Corporate Fundraiser for Turning Tides commented “Thank you so much ETI for your ongoing support – it has never been so gratefully received. Your generosity and that of others will enable us to offer help, much-needed hope, and even a little bit of Christmas to those who need it most in our community”.
Turning Tides is now the biggest provider of services for single homeless people in West Sussex and they continue to grow and develop their services to meet the needs of the local area. They provide real pathways out of homelessness and are committed to supporting people at every stage of their journey. Their services empower those experiencing homelessness to find the strength, confidence and belief in themselves to create a brighter future.
Jason Webb, Operations Director at ETI recently visited the Worthing Hub to present a cheque. Jason said; ‘Christmas is a time of giving and thinking of others and the opportunity to help a local charity that provides such outstanding support was met with much enthusiasm by our staff and also enables us to help raise awareness and give something back to our community’.
