Chancerygate donates over £52,000 to charities throughout 2021

Chancerygate are pleased to announce that we have donated over £52,000 to a variety of charities and organisations throughout 2021.

Site donations

We are committed to giving back to each of the local communities in which we build and this year we donated over £16,000 across 9 local organisations from PACT for Autism to St. Basils. Our donation for Diverse Abilities went to their Sibling STARS Project which is for children and young people that have a brother or sister with a disability. The project consists of a 12-week after-school programme, as well as three day trips during the year.

The Andrew Grene Foundation

Chancerygate donated £35,000 to The Andrew Grene Foundation, a charity dedicated to supporting the people of Haiti through education, loans and building projects.

“2021 gave us many challenges, and although we tend to air on the side of optimism, these days have tested us.  While the media often exaggerates the realities in Haiti, recent reports are not untrue, and Haiti finds herself in one of her darkest times.

This said, we can report that after launching our earthquake appeal in August, we have been able to reach 1,459 micro-finance clients and give them direct financial assistance.  This was made possible by working closely with our partner organisation, Fonkoze, who were able to navigate the remote southern area of Haiti, reaching families in need.

And throughout the chaos, the Andrew Grene High School has remained open, whilst 90% of schools in Port-au-Prince were closed.  This has not been without difficulties or fear, but our staff and students have remained strong, and stand firm in their belief that better days will come in Haiti.

Thank you for being tirelessly associated with our efforts.”

Jane Holden, Director of Fundraising, Andrew Grene Foundation

Tree Planting

Chancerygate teamed up with Thames21 on a project to improve biodiversity and flood defences at Turkey Brook in Enfield, North London. With 25 staff members we were able to plant over 1,100 trees. Thames21 works with communities and volunteers to improve London’s waterways and cleaning and greening the areas around them. Plenty of volunteering opportunities are available, and you can find out more on their website.

Gloucester College Visit

Chancerygate, Northwood Investments and Barnwood Limited took a group of students from Gloucestershire College around Festival Trade Park and Furlong Park. The students were in their first year of BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Construction and the Built Environment, they will be the next generation of quantity surveyors, site managers and civil engineers!

King Solomon Academy

A few volunteers from the business took part in the virtual careers event. Assisting in CV checking, online mock interviews and the careers carousel; delivering short online presentations to students and answering any questions they had.

Christmas donations

This Christmas we donated and supported multiple organisations:

KidsOut

We swapped Secret Santa for KidsOut Giving Tree and donated just under 50 gifts for children in refuge. The recipients are children who have escaped domestic violence, being forced to flee their homes quickly and leave all possessions behind.

LandAid

Instead of sending out Christmas cards this year, we donated £1,000 to LandAid, the property industry charity that aims to end to youth homelessness in the UK.

“We bring the property industry together to support charities delivering life-changing services for young people who are or have been homeless, or who are at risk of homelessness in the future.

Through a unique network of corporate partners, we invest funding and expertise where we can achieve lasting impact.”

Food donation

Due to rising Covid cases, we postponed our Christmas lunch where we had booked No. 11 Pimlico Road for a festive 3-course meal. The pandemic has been tough on many businesses and people, so we asked the restaurant to proceed with the original order and we got in touch with Baker Street Quarter Partnership to see if they knew where we could donate our meals to. We were able to help feed over 30 women at The Marylebone Project, who provide an all-encompassing space where vulnerable homeless women at risk – during the day or at night – can feel safe, supported and not alone in dealing with the crisis they are facing allowing them to move forward.

We also donated £250 to Brixton Soup Kitchen, a Brixton based service for the homeless and people in need. They also help people from London and surrounding areas and rely heavily on donations and volunteers to continue our work.
