Thank you to Colmore Business District for choosing us as their nominated charity for 2015/16.
Colmore Business District (CBD) is a business improvement district (BID) within which local businesses collaborate to invest in projects, services and initiatives which improve the environment in which they work.
“We knew that this year we wanted to choose a charity that works with the homeless. Homelessness is something we and our colleagues from the District see every day and collectively we want to help make a difference. We chose SIFA Fireside because we want to support the services they offer to those who are homeless or are in danger of becoming homeless. They are a unique charity who not only offer hot meals, but offer help and services that their clients can’t access anywhere else. We hope that whatever funds we raise or campaign we run, it will go someway to help homeless adults in our local community.” Lucy Elvin, Colmore Business District
During 2015/16 Colmore Business District will provide support through fundraising, donations, volunteering and professional support. Support from business helps us to continue to fund and deliver our much needed drop-in centre and services based at Allcock Street, Digbeth, where we work with some of Birmingham’s most vulnerable adults; people who are homeless or vulnerably housed.
We look forward to working with Colmore Business District and will be welcoming them to our drop-in centre in the near future to meet with our clients and our team of staff and volunteers.
