Winter is Coming – and imagine if you had no-where to live. What if your bed was a cold, damp pavement and you had to beg for money or worse!
“Recent surveys reveal that more people than ever are sleeping rough in Wales and most of them can be found on the streets of Cardiff,” said William Harris, Managing Director and Founder of Lawrence Miller & Co.
“I and my colleagues were so appalled that we decided we had to do something to help which is why we are publicisng and promoting the work of the Huggard, which is Wales’s leading centre for rough sleepers.”
The Huggard’s day centre and hostel in Cardiff are open 24/7 and offers more than just refuge. It’s dedicated staff work with the homeless providing practical support to help them get off the streets.
Just about every penny donated to the Huggard is directly spent on helping rough sleepers. However, such care doesn’t come cheap.
This is why Lawrence Miller is supporting the Huggard’s Angel for the Day campaign.
“For a minimum donation of £250 you will feed everyone who comes into the Huggard, that’s about a 100 people on a daily basis. The weather is expected get much worse over the coming weeks and this is such a practical way for anyone to help such a great cause,” said William Harris.
