The donation of £1,000 has come from the Loughton-based firm’s in-house charity, the Haslers Foundation, and will be put towards offering accredited courses for individuals, which will aim to increase self-esteem, confidence and knowledge, in order to enhance their employability.

Streets2Homes offers a supporting role to homeless and vulnerably housed individuals aged from 18 in Harlow and the surrounding areas.

Alongside its cash donation, members of Haslers’ team also collected a range of toiletries and supplies for the charity.

Speaking about the donation, Jon O’Shea Chairman of the Haslers Foundation said: “When we heard about Streets2Homes we knew that we wanted to support them and we are delighted that our donation will be put towards opening up new opportunities for Harlow’s young homeless population.

“I would like to also thank our staff members for donating a wide range of items to this charity, it was totally unexpected, but has made a big difference to this cause.”

Since it was launched, Haslers Foundation has raised more than £150,000 for charity which has been donated to causes across Essex, the South East and beyond.
