Spires is a South London based charity that has been helping hundreds of homeless and disadvantaged people all year round for over 25 years.
Why is this important to us? We believe in sustainability. Not just for our planet but for people too. Our societies should provide enough support for the least well-off. Spires is local to us and they've been on the frontline of supporting those in our neighbourhood who most need a helping hand.
Spires works to improve the quality of life of people who are homeless, insecurely housed, unemployed or suffering from the effects of poverty, mental illness and/or loneliness.
The level of support Spires offers is really extensive. They hold a Rough Sleeper's Space every weekday morning and a Women's Space twice a week. These are safe spaces where hot food and showers are available to all. The clothes bank is always open when someone needs an extra layer and there's a whole timetable of skills courses to get involved in.
Referrals can stretch from nursing, tenancy advice, dentist, chiropodist, counselling and so on.
We've pledged 5% of our proceedings to the Spires charity. That means every purchase helps Spires do what they do for those who really need it.
