Magenta has donated £300 to Brighton charity the Clock Tower Sanctuary, which provides information, advice and support to young people who are homeless or insecurely-housed in the area.
We raised the money with the help of our client, facilities management provider Servest. In April 2013 Servest commissioned us to undertake a market perception audit among client-side facilities management professionals in London. As an incentive to participate and as a thank you, Magenta donated £10 for every interview to the sanctuary.
We plan to donate a proportion of our profits every year to the Sanctuary, which is a short walk from our main office in Brighton. Last year we donated £206.54, a small percentage of the profits from our first financial year.
Cathy Hayward, managing director of Magenta, said: “No young person should ever be homeless. I am delighted that we can help to support this fantastic charity in some small way and help young people to get a roof over their heads. Thanks to our client Servest, we have been able to donate £300 to this very worthy cause.”
Kate Gibson, development manager at the Clock Tower Sanctuary, said: “A big thank you to Magenta for your recent donation of £300. Including your pre-Christmas gift, you’ve now donated more than £500 to our work with young homeless people, which is fantastic.
“The last year was an exceptionally busy one for the Sanctuary. The numbers of young people facing homelessness are rising and the pressure on our service is growing. In these conditions, it is really heartening that people in the local community – and especially people in businesses like Magenta – are interested in supporting frontline charities like ours.”
