As part of The Winter Forest at Broadgate Circle, we're teaming up with the UK’s leading youth homeless charity, Centrepoint, to raise much-needed funds this Christmas. (Find out more about their work here in our special Q&A and also hear from Centrepoint ambassador, Lisa Maxwell).
We've placed collection tins at all Broadgate receptions and around The Winter Forest for people to give directly, while Jose Pizarro will be supporting £1 donations via their special 5j Jamon plate. You can also join our weekly Monday night festive quiz, at just £3 entry each with all going to Centrepoint, you could win a round of cocktails at Mrs Fogg's Winter Terrace if you come out on top! With 18,000 young people (aged 16-25) at risk of homelessness, this is a brilliant way to spread the festive spirit and help to transform a vulnerable young person’s life forever.
We've made it even easier to show your support this year, you can now donate to Centrepoint online via our JustGiving Page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/broadgate-winter-forest
Centrepoint is the UK’s leading charity for homeless young people aged 16-25. Founded in 1969, Centrepoint has helped more than 116,000 homeless young people.
Centrepoint’s work is about more than just providing a safe bed for the night; Centrepoint helps young people to turn their lives around by gaining essential life skills; tackling their physical and mental health issues and moving into education or employment.

Through policy work, Centrepoint aims to influence public policy, campaigning on behalf of the young people it supports and homeless young people throughout the UK. For more information, please visit www.centrepoint.org.uk or support them on social media:
