Pallet-Track raises £1,400 for two local charities

We’d like to say a big thank-you to all our staff members for their ‘mufti day’ donations in 2018.

We are delighted to confirm the £1,400 donated will go to two local charities, both of which have been nominated by our staff. The money will be split evenly, with £700 going to Living Springs and £700 going to The Lotus Sanctuary.

Living Springs is a charity focused on caring for and supporting children, young people and families. The thrust of its work is child-centred – where there is a risk to the child, it aims to start ‘in the world of the child’ – to see the situation from the child’s perspective and plan what to do so that the child is given the best opportunity to develop into a fulfilled person.

Living Springs is based in Stourton, near Stourbridge. It provides care, support and hope to vulnerable children and families through a range of services, including counselling for mothers who might consider adoption and support for children at risk of harm and their mothers affected by conflict.

You can find out more about Living Springs on its website.

The Lotus Sanctuary is a community interest company set up to house and empower vulnerable women suffering a range of complex issues; from rough sleepers to domestic violence victims, sexually exploited women and those seeking to get free from drug and alcohol addictions.

The Lotus Sanctuary equips its residents with skills which are vital to leading successful, independent lives. Its houses are small, with no more than four residents per property, which ensures individualised support and aids in the resident’s path to independent living.

There are currently two houses in the Black Country area and the charity aims to set up a further two houses in March.
