All supplies collected as part of Mountjoy’s donation appeal in support of local Portsmouth charity, Helping Hands, have now been handed over to the charity, ready to be distributed to vulnerable members of the local community. 

Helping Hands are a group of volunteers who provide hot food, hot drinks, and other necessary supplies to homeless and vulnerable people in Portsmouth, using donations from the public. Led by Bev Saunders, the volunteers cook food in their own homes to create food and wellbeing parcels, handing these out at various locations within the city. They also spend time offering emotional and practical support, which even extends to supporting them with accessing emergency healthcare and staying with them if they attend hospital.

Following the success of a similar appeals carried out over the last two years, Mountjoy invited our staff, subcontractors and members of our supply chain to join in our efforts to support the cause. Donations were collected at our office in North End, Portsmouth, before being handed over to Bev on 8th December.  

We would like to thank all staff and suppliers who generously donated to this fantastic cause, including member of our supply chain, Greenhams, Service Master, Gwella, SLG, Grubbs and Banks, J&D, and JMB Electrical - your efforts will make a big difference to the local community this Christmas and well into 2024!
