The Irwin Mitchell Charities Foundation (IMCF) has announced its annual round of donations to a range of good causes across the country, including Crawley.
Through the IMCF, colleagues from each of Irwin Mitchell’s regional offices, including Crawley at The Pinnacle in Crawley town centre, have nominated 28 local foodbanks and homeless charities to receive a share of the £137,500 donation this winter, to support their vital work helping vulnerable people.
Founded in 1997, the IMCF is an independent charity that has now raised over £3 million for good causes in the UK and abroad.
This year’s donations are made possible thanks to the generosity of Irwin Mitchell and its employees who support the IMCF via the firm’s Give As You Earn scheme.
Supporting foodbanks and homeless charities in the communities in which they operate during the festive season, has become a tradition for Irwin Mitchell and the IMCF.
Due to the cost of living crisis, many thousands of people already rely on the essential services provided by these charities. However, demand for services increases over the winter months due to the impact of colder weather.
The 28 charities being supported this year includes two in Crawley.
Ten Little Toes Baby Bank, offers support to families and parents in crisis or facing difficult circumstances and Crawley Open House which provides support and services for those suffering the effects of homelessness, unemployment, loneliness, or discrimination.
