The Property Rescue team will be dedicating their Christmas morning to help those less fortunate, handing out food and festive cheer to those living on the streets of London.
With homelessness a major problem in Britain, we’ll be working our way across Camden, Oxford Street, King Cross and more to make sure those without a home receive a meal and some warm clothes.
It’s estimated that around 170,000 people without a home in London, with Camden alone having 127 people living on the streets and many people in temporary accommodation.
In the UK, around 320,000 people are without a home according to Shelter and of that number 130,000 of those are children, many of whom will be in temporary accommodation.
We’ve seen first hand how this can affect people’s home security which is why we’ll be out from 6am aiming to greet around 100 homeless people and do what we can to help.
Danny Nieberg, Director at Property Rescue said, “Our team will be out in full force on Christmas Day to ensure those less fortunate than ourselves don’t spend their day hungry, cold and alone.
“We understand that the property market is difficult for many in 2018 and not only are we looking to help people on Christmas Day but right across 2019 too.”
Homelessness has increased 61% since 2010 and is naturally hugely disruptive on both a child and adult’s life, with it being a contributing factor to mental health and emotional wellbeing problems.
We’re encouraging anyone who can help someone less fortunate than themselves to do so no matter how big or small. It really will make a difference.
Have a very merry Christmas from all at the Property Rescue team.
