Cofinitive Wintercomfort Christmas Campaign
At Cofinitive it is important for us to be a part of the pay it forward community. The festive season is all about giving so this Christmas we are running a campaign to collect donations from across Cambridge in aid of Wintercomfort.
Wintercomfort supports men and women who are homeless or vulnerable by offering them vital welfare services and opportunities for learning and training. Their day centre is open seven days a week. They will be open throughout the festive period, including Christmas Day, providing Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.
In the last year they have helped 742 individuals, welcoming an average of 52 people each day into their day centre. They supported 52 people back into employment, making lasting, positive changes in their lives.
We are working with some of our clients and partners to set up drop off points in several locations around Cambridge. Clients that are involved in our Christmas Campaign are Cambridge Advisory Partners and Smithson Hill. You can of course also drop off donations at the Cofinitive office.
