We raise awareness and funds to combat the causes of homelessness

Story

Your support means the world to us. You really do make a huge difference. 

In September 2019 with a colleague Clint Nykamp we will walk a total of 84 miles in 3 days along the length of Hadrians Wall. This is a little over 3 marathons. The route will take us coast to coast across the Northern part of England. 

The trip will be funded entirely by the team and every penny we raise will go straight to homeless charities in the form of a grant through the Fine & Country Foundation.

The money we have raised in the past with other events has been used to help a local charity Helping Hands. With the money we have raised they have purchased a soup bus, opened a drop in center and created a support network to help people back on their feet.

About the charity

The Fine & Country Foundation has been created to help combat one of the largest social issues in the UK – homelessness. Last year, the Government estimated around 2,414 people sleep on the street on any one night across England, a rise of 36% over three years. Often the reasons for homelessness are misunderstood, with many blaming the individuals for poor life decisions and carelessness. The reality is: people become homeless for a whole range of complex and overlapping reasons that cannot be avoided, such as family breakdowns, mental or physical health problems or debts. Solving homelessness does not only involve putting a roof over people’s heads, it is also trying to tackle the root of the problem and asking the question: why did they became homeless in the first place? The Fine & Country Foundation is dedicated to bringing together all Fine & Country agents in over 300 locations worldwide to raise awareness of the causes of homelessness whilst supporting homeless charities.
