Various fundraising events were held throughout the year and the charity, which believes no young person should ever have to experience homelessness, has now received the funds with thanks.
The annual golf day at Cottrell Park Golf Club raised more than £3,000 and other events included McCann team members taking in the Muddy Assault Course in Porthcawl, a dodgeball game at St Peter’s Rugby Club with Whitehead Building Services, Cambria Consulting Engineers and Rio Architects and a quiz night in November.
Barbara Redmore, from Llamau, said: “I want to say a huge thank you to McCann and Partners for choosing Llamau as the charity of choice for 2023 and for the recent donation of £5,000 from all the fundraising activities for Llamau throughout the year.
“In the last couple of years, we have supported more people than ever before – in excess of 100,000 people across all our services and programmes in 2022/23 - and we are very much committed to our mission to end youth homelessness and homelessness for vulnerable women.
“We continue to develop our services so that for the people we support, homelessness is rare, brief and non-recurrent. Our ultimate aim is that they can leave homelessness behind for good. Now we face new challenges with the cost-of-living crisis and more and more people being referred into our services needing crisis accommodation and support. So please know, your support is invaluable, especially at this time and we truly couldn’t do our work without people like you.”
McCann Associate Rhys Silcox said: “It’s been great to support Llamau over the past year and we are delighted to have raised £5,000. Well done to all those who took part in events and a big thank you to all those who have donated for such a worthy charity.”
