The Wellspring Chosen as Contra Vision’s Charity of the YearFebruary 22nd, 2023 by Chris Collier
Contra Vision has chosen The Wellspring, a U.K.-based charity helping those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, as their charity of the year for 2023. The decision to support this charity was taken because the team wanted to support those in the local community who needed help meeting their basic needs.
The team at Contra Vision recently visited the Bramhall office with Paul Cornwall, a project manager from the Wellspring, to talk to the team about the service that the charity provides as well as what Contra Vision can do to help. The team learned that supporting those experiencing homelessness only touches the surface of what the Wellspring does for the community.
They work to give support with physical and mental health problems, substance abuse and addiction, abuse and social exclusion, domestic violence, emotional coercion, unemployment, debt and illiteracy.
Over the next year, Contra Vision employees will take part in fundraising activities to raise money for the service and collect food, clothing and other essentials at the Bramhall office to donate to the Wellspring. The charity also has its own fundraising initiatives, which the team will participate in throughout the year.
