THE CARIDON TEAM SUPPORT LOCAL HOMELESS COMMUNITY BY TAKING PART IN SLEEP OUT CROYDON

ON Sunday 24th March, a team from Caridon braved the cold weather and hard floor by sleeping rough in Boxpark Croydon for Sleep Out Croydon to raise money to support Evolve, a charity providing housing and support to over 2,000 people each year.

The team, CEO Mario Carrozzo, Managing Director Akeel Alidina, Hicham Abbad, Emma Lambert, Giselle King, Jodie Anderson, Bilaal Lone, Nasser Halabi, Helen Cro, Chris Membu, Sarah Facey, Chantay Dorival, Ebenezer Amoh, Sarah Costello, Sharon Lewis, Yakup Karakurt, and Karla Ashun took part in the event to support the charity and raise awareness for the work it does.

Caridon Property are the landlords at Templefields House and Terminus House in Harlow.

Evolve is leading the ‘CR Zero 2020’ initiative to end rough sleeping in Croydon by working with partners such as Crisis. The money raised from the event helps homeless people off the streets and into positive, independent lives.

Caridon is passionate about helping the community and most importantly, raising funds and awareness for the plight of homelessness that effects our country. Caridon works with Local Authorities and external provisions to fight homelessness in the communities that they serve and have worked alongside Evolve for many years. With this in mind, not only was Caridon excited to support this cause, it was also able to provide merchandising sponsorship to the event with branded mugs, which helped to facilitate hot cups of tea for all the event participants on the night.

Mario Carrozzo, CEO of the Caridon Group, said: “We’re delighted to have been able to support Evolve by taking part in this event for a fantastic cause. We help house the homeless and know how vital this help is to vulnerable people and how it can turn their lives around.
“Everyone deserves a bed, a home, a safe place to sleep. We believe in the potential of people regardless of their circumstances and have developed The Caridon Foundation specifically to provide supported accommodation and volunteering opportunities to people affected by homelessness and difficult circumstances. Our experience has shown that real work acts as a platform for a person to transform their whole life for the better, including helping them find stable and permanent housing.

“I’m proud of the team for getting involved to raise funds for this worthwhile cause and even after getting no sleep on Sunday night, they all came into work on Monday morning!”

Caridon has raised over £5,000 for Evolve. If you would like to donate, please visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/the-caridon-foundation
