We're proud to be spending another year helping the homeless in London
Here at OXO we love giving back, so much so that last year with your help we raised an incredible £12,486 for Groundswell. We have worked with StreetSmart for over 20 years and through them we pledged our support to Groundswell last year for the first time. StreetSmart are a team of people dedicated to supporting local charities with a reputation for helping the homeless in the UK.
This year we’ve decided to continue our partnership with Groundswell again for a second year running, something we have not done before. Groundswell’s compelling ambition to help with the homeless resonated strongly with us here at OXO so it was an easy choice to remain with them for a second year and support the local homeless community. This amazing charity train up volunteers, some of whom have lived on the streets themselves.
For most, going to the doctors is a simple task but without a home address the ability to register with a General Practice becomes incredibly difficult, making healthcare almost impossible to find. They provide them with training to deal with everyday situations such as seeking healthcare or finding a job suited to their skills. So throughout November and December when you dine with us, a discretionary £1 will be added to your bill, 100% of which will go to Groundswell. We have a great deal of respect for the work StreetSmart and Groundswell do and couldn’t be prouder to continue our support for them.
We’d like to extend a warm thank you to all of our customers who helped us support this fantastic campaign last year and we hope to see you again during the 2019 festive season!
