Property industry charity gives £25,000 to homeless women charity

LandAid, the charity representing the UK property industry, has donated £25,000 to the Marylebone Project, the largest centre in the UK dedicated to meeting the needs of homeless women.
The donation was presented on behalf of LandAid by Rob Bould, trustee of the charity and chairman of GVA Grimley’s Capital Markets Group, to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, President of the Marylebone Project.
Each year LandAid makes grants or donations to charities or organisations, usually connected with homelessness, that require help with a particular service or project they otherwise would not be able to fund.
Its support is divided into two main categories: smaller grants made once a year to projects that require support for a service or facility that would not otherwise get off the ground, and a major project, currently in partnership with Centrepoint, called “Foundations for Life” – a national initiative to provide life skills and real employment opportunities for young homeless people that will enable them to escape the cycle of dependency.
