Chelsea Design Quarter Charity Event Posted on 5 Nov 11:45 , 0 comments
The Shutter Shop and our fellow members of Chelsea Design Quarter (CDQ) have chosen Glass Door as the chosen charity for the Autumn Fundraiser Event to be held on November 21st at the Tom Faulkner Showroom.
The charity is London’s largest open-access network of emergency winter shelters and support services for men and women affected by homelessness. Their vision is of a future where no one has to sleep on the streets of London. Glass Door will be the recipient of 100% of the proceeds from the raffle being held by CDQ on 21st November, as well as from a collection of key items such as clothing and toiletries by the members. The Shutter Shop have donated to the raffle £500 to be spent on any of our Shutter or Blind products.
Glass Door offers shelter, advice and support to those affected by homelessness. This winter around 170 individuals across South and South West London will stay in a Glass Door church-based shelter every night, each receiving a warm welcome, a hot meal and somewhere safe to sleep. The shelters are open to all, space permitting, and do not require guests to fill in long complicated forms to gain access to their services. They are an independent charity and avoid seeking funding which would restrict their open access policy.
Glass Door also offers advice and support year-round to anyone seeking help. Their dedicated case workers can offer advice, advocacy and practical support. This service is available to their guests either in the shelters or during the daytime at partner drop in centres. Guests of these drop-in centres can also access other services, such as lunch, laundry and showers.
Please help us to support Glass Door by entering the Chelsea Design Quarter raffle.
Tickets for the event are £10 and can be purchased from The Shutter Shop Showroom, other CDQ members or via the JustGiving page.
