Fundraising for charity through parking tickets

Fundraising for charity through parking tickets

calfordseaden is proud to join Buxton and Prime Place in presenting local homelessness charity Porchlight with a combined donation of £3,600.

Inspiration for the fundraising came from Gary Puckett, site manager for contractors Buxton, after he’d noticed a homeless person by the station and decided to help. He came up with the novel idea of charging everyone who visited the building site a modest amount for parking their car. Over a period of 10 months, £1,200 was raised and the amount was matched equally by calfordseaden and Prime Place to a combined total of £3,600.

calfordseaden provided Employer’s Agent, Cost Consultant, M&E Engineering and Principal Designer services on the conversion of two commercial towers to 95 one and two befroom luxury apartments.

Homelessness charity Porchlight operates in Kent and is one of the leading charities supporting vulnerable and homeless people across the country. calfordseaden has strong connections with Porchlight, as it has been the nominated charity at the past three charity golf days we have organised on behalf of the Chartered Institute of Housing.
