Working Together to Help the Homeless


Over the last few weeks we’ve been working with Dalmatian Systems to put together Christmas Shoeboxes for the homeless and lots of you on the business park gave us your support.

Lucy Trinder, Operations Director of Dalmatian Systems says, “me and my sister Katie wanted to do this in memory of our Dad Ken, who passed away last year. It was a cause close to his heart and every year he would put together boxes for the homeless and we wanted to continue this in his honour. We approached Ransom Wood to see if they’d be a collection point for us and contact the businesses based there to see if they would get involved.”

Alison Warren from Ransom Wood added, “we were more than happy to get involved and the businesses based here were really keen to offer their support. We were completely overwhelmed when Nottinghamshire Community Foundation approached us to say that they would donate £500 worth of Greggs vouchers.”

In total 127 shoeboxes were collected, along with extra donations of hats, gloves and scarves, everything was delivered to the Soup Kitchen based on Church Street in Mansfield.

Lucy Trinder from Dalmatian added “Dropping the shoeboxes off and chatting to the people who run the soup kitchen really bought home just how much these donations mean to the people who will receive them.

Dalmatian Systems and ransom Wood would like to thank all the businesses and people who donated a shoe box, with special thanks to Nottinghamshire Community Foundation, Enva Waste and Mansfield Pet Sitters.

    Brilliant place, they have all sorts of businesses there. A cafe, hypnotherapy, hypnopuncture as well many others. Worth a drive up just to see what's there. Furthermore, it's in lovely surroundings.
