Bake Sale for Peter McVerry Trust
Today is World Homeless Day – an annual international event to draw attention the issue of homelessness across the globe.
Homelessness charity Peter McVerry Trust has been selected as Future Analytics Consulting’s charity of choice this year because of the obvious parallels with our work in the housing sector, as well as our awareness of the impact of this issue in Ireland.
The charity supports young people who have been affected by homelessness and social disadvantage. It provides a range of services including a residential drug detox, a drop-in centre, and supported housing to enable people to overcome issues they have in an environment that allows them to thrive.
We kickstarted our fundraising for Peter McVerry Trust last week with a bake sale, and discovered that we have a lot of talented bakers in FAC!
Our staff know their lemon drizzle cake from their raspberry roulade, so we split into three teams to compete and see who could win the great FAC bake-off.
The FAC technical team were the champions on the day. Graphic designer Lucas de Carvalho’s blueberry cheesecake was one of the highlights of a delicious assortment of cakes.
It was a fun event for a great cause, and will be the first of many we hope to hold over the next twelve months. We raised €342.80 for the charity which will go towards helping a young person find their way out of homelessness.
