Harvey Norman Boucher Road and Holywood Exchange stores are teaming up with Welcome Organisation to help raise awareness and funds for the homeless crisis in Northern Ireland. Harvey Norman customers and staff, together, raised an £5,000 for Shelter NI – and this year they are going to do it all over again for the Welcome Organisation. Harvey Norman are making homes in Northern Ireland for over 10 years, it’s what they do best.
Harvey Norman store teams across the country are planning a month of campaigning on behave of the charity. If you happen to you pop into a Harvey Norman shop this February, you will find Bake Sales, Cycles, Raffles with prizes to the value of £1,000 and lots more fundraising activities. They’ll be asking their customers to donate what they can.
How you can help Harvey Norman staff across the country to reach their goal:
- Buy a product from the Harvey Norman “Making Homes” Collection and Harvey Norman will £5 of the proceeds to the Welcome Organisation. There are over 800 products in the Making Homes Collection across, furniture, bedding and homewares.
- Donate to the Welcome Organisation at www.harvey-norman.co.uk/makinghomes
- Add a £1 donation at the Harvey Norman Checkout, online and in-store and Harvey Norman will match your £1 donation.
- Donate to fundraising activities organised by the Harvey Norman teams in-store for the whole month of February.
Sandra Moore, Chief Executive of The Welcome Organisation, said:
“We would like to express our sincere thanks to all the staff and customers of Harvey Norman for supporting the Welcome Organisation through the Making Homes campaign. We couldn’t deliver the level of support we do for people affected by homelessness without the generosity of the public and businesses like Harvey Norman.
The money raised will have a real and positive impact on our work and in turn on the lives of some of the 18,500 people who present as homeless every year in Northern Ireland. Our vital and potentially life-saving services include our Drop-in Centre, our Street Outreach service, our Crisis Accommodation for Women, our Floating Support service and our Welcome Home furniture project. Our Drop-in Centre is open from 8am-10pm every day of the year and is for people who are homeless to access food, tea, coffee, showers, laundry facilities, toilets as well as advice on housing, benefits, drug and alcohol addiction and more.
