Weʼre raising £2,000 to support people into homes and employment
The CHIC team will be taking part in a sponsored walk which will aim to raise £2,000. This will be split between St Basils and our very own CHIC Charity.
The team will be completing a 15-mile round trip across windy Leamington Hastings in the Midlands on Saturday 12th March 2022. CHIC has a contractual commitment with our supply chain in supporting those distant from the workplace into apprenticeships and employment as part of our social value agenda, amongst other initiatives. This year, we thought we would get our feet dirty!
St Basils works with young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, to enable them to find and keep a home, grow their confidence, develop their skills, increase opportunities and prevent homelessness. CHIC will be supporting the You Can programme, whereby they are short £5 per young person, per night for accommodation and support.
CHIC is establishing its own charity, to be launched shortly, which will support apprenticeships, training, employment and community initiatives for CHIC’s members and their communities. The £1,000 target will sponsor an individual currently distant from the workplace into a job.
