hub West Scotland helps provide winter jackets to Glasgow City Mission

IMG_0058Over 70 winter jackets have been donated to homeless men in and around Glasgow thanks to a Christmas Appeal launched by hub West Scotland.

Enlisting the support of its supply chain of local consultants, architects and contractors, the development company will deliver the donations to homelessness charity Glasgow City Mission in time for Christmas.

Angeline Robertson, partnerships director at hub West Scotland Ltd told Scottish Housing News: “This is the second year we have asked our supply chain to help support Glasgow City Mission following our donation of sleeping bags to its Night Shelter last Christmas. This year we provided our partners with hyperlinks to purchasing websites for men’s padded winter jackets and the response has been huge.

“Glasgow City Mission is obviously a charity which is close to the hearts of the companies we work with. We only launched the appeal at the start of December so to be able to provide local homeless men with these jackets in time for the winter months is great.”

In the past it has helped Glasgow City Mission by carrying out bag packs and donating food and toiletry sets.

Companies which voluntarily donated jackets to the Christmas Appeal include contractors Fleming Buildings, CCG, CBC, BAM, Morgan Sindall, Interserve, Robertson FM as well as architects Norr, Keppie, Holmes Miller, Mast, Elder & Canon and Anderson Bell + Christie.
