Bensons supporting Crisis this Christmas

Bensons for Beds has partnered with homelessness charity Crisis this Christmas, with staff being paid if they volunteer and donations from bed sales.

Bensons will give staff a paid day to volunteer at one of the Crisis Skylight centres and at its London hotels – where voluntary work includes helping in the kitchens, packing hampers, making deliveries and making seasonal telephone calls to Crisis members. 

Bensons will also make a £5 donation to Crisis for every Simply by Bensons mattress sold from 7 December. 

‘This winter, lots of people at the sharp end of poverty are at risk of being pushed into homelessness and we would like to do something to help. Everyone at Bensons is proud to be supporting Crisis this Christmas and the fantastic work it does to help people who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness,’ says Lara Purcell, Bensons director of marketing and innovation.

‘We’d like to say a huge thank you to Bensons for Beds for its amazing support this Christmas. It is only because of support like this, that we are able to be here at both Christmas and all year-round, for people experiencing homelessness up and down the country. The generous support ensures that we can provide warmth, companionship and support to people this Christmas and help people take their first steps out of homelessness but will also help us to get closer to our ultimate goal of ending homelessness across this country for good,’ says Richard Lee, Crisis director of fundraising.

Staff across the business will be raising money for the charity and they will wear red on 19 December to show their support for Crisis.

Earlier this month Load agreed a partnership with fellow homelessness charity St Mungo’s and Naturalmat began making mattresses for Shelter, Single Homeless Project and Re-fuweegee.
