Local firm pledges to assist Shekinah
Plymouth based removal company Hackworthy & Sons have agreed to offer their ongoing support to local charity Shekinah. As run as running a Drop-In Centre In Bath Street, Shekinah also run a Hostel in the city as well as delivering a number of key rehabilitation courses for substance mis-users.
Hackworthy & Sons are looking to encourage their customers to donate any unwanted clothes, blankets and electrical items, these items can either be given directly to the homeless, used with their hostel or sold to raise much needed funds via their shop at Union Street. Company Director Vicky Hackworthy explained; “When people move house it is a natural time to de-clutter. Very often people decide to discard perfectly good items, just because they no longer personally need them. We will be asking our customers to allow us to pass on these items to Shekinah, having seen their work at first hand we know that they will point any items to really good use”.
Local businesses can play a significant part in sustaining the future of Shekinah ; “Smart, creative, long term partnerships like these can really change the lives, aspirations, achievements and skills of local, vulnerable people,” says John Hamblin, chief executive, Shekinah. “Long term corporate support from the business community is essential for our charity to thrive and has a positive impact on all sides. With Hackworthy and Son’s help, we can drive up donations and continue to move Shekinah forward,” he adds.
