What we do
We’ve a highly-trained workforce of circa 3500, 40 + national operational centres, 4 training hubs and a fleet of over 2500 vehicles.
On Wednesday, 30th March 2022, Kelly Group representatives Helen Corbett, Marie Boyle, Rachel Collier, Raymond Britton, James Young and Christopher Campbell – laid a bed under the London stars alongside almost 100 people to support the Lady Mayoress’ first ever charity sleep out event.
The charitable event was hosted by Amanda Keaveny, The Lady Mayoress of the City of London to raise awareness of homelessness in the City and fundraise for The Lord Mayor’s Appeal and Spitalfields Crypt Trust. The Lady Mayoress is an active supporter of the cause and volunteers at a number of London based homeless charities.
Kelly Group employees joined forces with friends, families, colleagues, and businesses to raise funds and awareness for this important issue. The sense of unity was present across our nationwide workforce throughout the fundraising period, and we are proud to share that together with our supporters we raised an incredible £11,228.
We wish to thank each and every one of you for your fantastic support. Our combined involvement will hopefully make a small dent in what is a huge problem in todays society - together we can bring some small restitution to those in need.
More than 11,000 people sleep rough on the streets of London every year, unfortunately, homelessness is an often-overlooked issue. Those who are sleeping rough live in dangerous conditions and feel isolated from our society. We take our homes for granted, unaware that all it takes to lose such luxury is financial problems, mental health problems, loss of a job, serious addiction, leaving the care system or broken relationships (domestic abuse and violence).
The purpose of this charitable event is to raise awareness of the high number of homeless people living in the City and raise funds for charities who either support the prevention of homelessness or provide aid for those in need, including The Lord Mayor's Appeal.
Kelly Group is proud to support the Lady Mayoress’ fundraising efforts and the Lord Mayor’s Appeal. We’re very much looking forward to supporting homeless charities in the future and due to such a successful event, we have chosen to donate all our fundraising from our forthcoming charity football tournament to support the homeless charity, Shelter.
