Hats on to help homeless people for Woolly Hat Day fundraiser

Summary

Global workplace provider Regus is supporting Woolly Hat Day on Friday 31st January for St Mungo’s, a charity which helps thousands of people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness each year. The charity provides housing, health and work projects across London and the South East.

The 145 local Regus centres in London and the South of England will be fundraising and also offering a free Business Lounge one-day pass to anyone who visits a centre sporting a hat on 31st January. The money will help St Mungo’s to continue supporting homeless men and women to rebuild their lives away from homelessness, including job training and employment advice, education projects, counselling and support with health issues.

John Spencer, CEO of Regus in the UK, comments: “Woolly Hat Day is a fantastic fundraising event which raises vital funds to support people who do not have a roof over their head. We’re hoping that lots of other local workplaces as well as schools and individuals will be supporting our variety of fundraising events and joining us in wearing woolly or other fun hats on 31st January.”

Christine Mortensen, Head of Major Gifts Fundraising at St Mungo’s, comments: “The fantastic efforts by the Regus network of over 140 local business centres across the South of England will help St Mungo’s support homeless people rebuild their lives. We would like to thank everyone who takes part in Woolly Hat Day, which is a fun and inspirational day to help homeless people.”

Anyone wishing to take part can drop into a Regus centre in London or the South of England or donate online at www.justgiving.com/RegusUKcentres or by texting HATS77 and the amount (e.g. HATS77 £2) to 70070.

Regus operates a global network of flexible, modern work spaces including business lounges, meeting rooms and touch-down desks.
