A handful of our London team recently volunteered at the Barons Court Project in Hammersmith on Wednesday 29th August. The Barons Court Project is a charity that has been running for 33 years and supports people on low incomes who are vulnerable to mental health or homelessness.
The charity, who organise various activities from yoga to IT classes, put on a group summer barbeque for all. Our involvement on the day included speaking to those who attend the centre, helping to serve and clear up after the barbeque and ensuring that all the guests had a great day.
Ryan Curtis–Johnson, head of PR and marketing at drp commented, “We were grateful to Baron’s Court Project for allowing us to help them with their BBQ. It’s good to see the team come together and step away from the day job and give something back to those in need. Giving back to a community costs nothing but your time, and by speaking with the individuals, it’s clear that this particular project provides vital support to the local community."
It’s really important to have visitors to reduce the stigma around mental health and homelessness, in order to build connections to the wider community.
Michael Angus, Director of the Barons Court Project also commented, “We
were so delighted to have the drpteam come and visit us and be a part
of our community here at the Barons Court Project. It’s really important
to have visitors to reduce the stigma around mental health and
homelessness, in order to build connections to the wider community. Our
group at the project really enjoyed speaking to the team, as many live
alone or are homeless, so having that human contact is just want they
needed to brighten up their day. drp did a great job at talking and
engaging with the group and helping clear up after the BBQ. We were so
thrilled for the various gifts which will be put to good use in the life
of our community. A huge thank you, and we hope to see the drp team
To help support the Barons Court Project charity, we collated a variety of household items, such as tea, coffee, and
shower gels for the charity to use on a daily basis.
