Cardiff telemarketing company PS Group has donated £10,000 to The Wallich homeless charity.
The £10,000 donation from the PS Group will provide a considerable boost to the short term funding of The Wallich charity and its work.
Jan Baldson, Head of Community Partnerships at The Wallich said: “We’re so grateful for the PS Group’s support. This generous donation will help us keep our emergency night shelter in Cardiff open for another 12 months. Our partnership with the PS Group is essential for supporting the long-term rehabilitation of those affected by homelessness and help us remove the barriers they face with employment.
“The impact of PS Group’s donation is substantial. The Wallich supports more than 4,000 people every year to help them gain the accommodation and assistance to live safer, happier and more independent lives within their local communities.”
The donation signifies the second collaboration between the two enterprises after the recent launch of the ‘On The Up’ project. Launched in March, ‘On The Up’ was designed to remove the employment barriers faced by homeless and formerly homeless people, with mentoring and employment opportunities provided by the PS Group.
Speaking about PS Group’s partnership with The Wallich, company Managing Director and founder Wayne Phillips said: “It’s a human responsibility to make sure projects like these stay open, without support from charities like The Wallich where would people suffering from the hardships of homelessness go for help? That’s why we’re proud and honoured to support The Wallich in any way we can.”
Founded by Wayne Phillips in 2010, The PS Group offer direct marketing solutions for clients. The company provide various channels to directly target customers and sell third party products, as well as its own.
