Funds Raised To Support Homeless People In Hertfordshire



The fundraising efforts of the IT team at Letchworth-based contractor Willmott Dixon have resulted in local Herts homeless charity Feed Up, Warm Up receiving over £6,104 to support its work providing safe spaces for the county’s most vulnerable people.


This is the result of a busy 12 months of activities by the IT team for the charity that included a family fun day, gruelling hiking challenge, and a company-wide fantasy football league.


The money will help Feed Up, Warm Up’s work offering food and friendly support to homeless people, and those at risk of homelessness. It will also help the charity’s homeless outreach work where they send teams into the community to offer support directly to those in need, right across Hertfordshire.


Each year Willmott Dixon’s IT team select a local charity to support, with Feed Up, Warm Up the chosen beneficiary in 2023, with activities led by management trainees who work with colleagues across the company. In 2024, the team’s charity is Letchworth’s Garden House Hospice, which provides free specialist palliative care for patients, families and carers facing life limiting illnesses from across North Hertfordshire, Stevenage and towns and villages in Central Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire.


Willmott Dixon management trainee Mahsa Dehghani says:

“It was a pleasure to raise so much money for this fantastic charity – they do brilliant such work and given Willmott Dixon’s strong roots in Hertfordshire, along with our ethos to help those less fortunate in society, supporting Feed Up, Warm Up was a natural fit. We are so proud to have helped make a difference and look forward to doing the same in 2024 with Garden House Hospice.”

Willmott Dixon is well known for its purpose beyond profit and its commitment to leaving a positive legacy where it works. It was awarded the King’s Award for Enterprise for Promoting Opportunity, the fourth such accolade for the company, and the first from HM King Charles III.
