In September last year we donated £10,000 from our Charity Donations Fund to The Cheltenham Housing Aid Centre (CHAC).
They are a small independent charity that gives free advice and information to the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people in their community.
We took the opportunity to catch-up with CHAC to see how our donation helped rehouse five people in the Cheltenham area. One of those was a local man who was living in his car after the breakdown of his relationship, leaving him depressed and desperate. Our funding has helped him find a flat. He can now have his kids over to stay and is looking forward to getting back into work.
Over the last year The DPS Charity Donations Fund has donated £80,000 to good causes and we’re proud to be able to support the vital work of charities such as CHAC.
