Birmingham based company makes a beeline to prevent homelessneess

As our year-long fundraising partnership with Beeline comes to an end, they reflect on why they chose St Basils to be their ‘Charity of the Year’ and what they feel they’ve got out of the partnership….

When Beeline promotional products started looking for a Charity of the year partner St Basils really stood out to them. After previously supporting a national charity the team decided they would like to support a charity closer to home doing work in the local community.

Peter welch Managing Director of Beeline said; “We, like many businesses have been shocked to see the increase in Homelessness in our city, after a bit of research we found St Basils and the amazing work they do. Over 5000 young vulnerable people were supported by the charity last year. It was wonderful to hear that St Basils don’t just provide accommodation they do so much more, family mediation, employability skills, educational opportunities and life skills for Young People too. We have really enjoyed working with Sian and the fundraising team and the highlight was taking part in the St Basils Woof Run in Solihull, a great day out that raised much needed funds for the charity. I would encourage any business that wants to make a difference to work with St Basils, they are short £5 per night for every young person they support, so our contribution of over £3,000 has potentially helped over 600 young people”

Barrie Hodge from St Basils said; “A huge thank you to Peter and the team from Beeline for donating over £3,000 over the past 12 months to St Basils, it’s been a pleasure working with the team and the money they have raised will make a huge difference to us.”
