Victoria Team Donate to Marylebone Project

Victoria team donates to Marylebone project

The Tideway team at Victoria Embankment has donated second-hand personal protective equipment (PPE) to a local homeless shelter in great need of warm clean clothes. 

Having noticed the amount of homeless people in the local area, Maeve Kenny, Health, Safety and Wellbeing Advisor, recognised how the site team could help. 

Maeve said: "Last year as I was walking to the Victoria site in the depths of winter, every morning I was reminded of the lives that some people have as I passed by many homeless men and women at Westminster station.

"It was a very sinking feeling. So I thought it would be great if I could help in some way."

Maeve contacted a number of homeless shelters and the Marylebone Project responded saying they would be grateful for any donations. The site team were able to gather any second-hand, unbranded boots and trousers and deliver them to the shelter.

The Marylebone Project is a homeless shelter for women, offering 112 long- and short-term beds as well as delivering education, employment and training opportunities to support the homeless into independent living.
