CES shines light on homelessness this Christmas

January 4, 2024

Leading energy efficiency company Consumer Energy Solutions (CES) has partnered with Crisis Skylight South Wales this festive season.

The Swansea-based company has participated in a range of fundraising activities throughout December to raise over £1400 for the charity, which supports people experiencing homelessness.

Crisis is a national charity that helps people directly out of homelessness and campaigns for the changes needed to end homelessness altogether.

The Skylight, located on St Helen’s Road, Swansea, is one of 9 run by Crisis across the UK. The Skylight team support people at risk of or currently experiencing homelessness in Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot to end their homelessness through providing advice, support and learning opportunities.  While the Skylight provides support all year round, the festive period can be an especially difficult and lonely time for many members, so the charity is putting on extra seasonal activities, including a Christmas party.

As part of their fundraising efforts, the whole team at CES’s offices in Swansea Harbour wore Christmas Jumpers on 4 December, and many attended Crisis’ carol service at St James’ Church in Uplands with their families. A member of staff is also volunteering with Crisis over the festive period. December.

Ashella Lewis, Director at Crisis Skylight South Wales, said: “We can’t thank our supporters at CES enough for their donations, volunteering and general support this festive season.

“For many of our members, Christmas can be a particularly lonely and difficult time so being able to provide companionship over Christmas can make a huge difference. But it is only through the support of our kind donors, volunteers and partners, like the CES, that we’re able to be there for people at Christmas, and all year round, as they build their life away from homelessness. And for that we’re especially grateful.”

Saleem Furreed, Operations Director at CES, said: “We are so proud to  be supporters of Crisis this year, and to have been able to help them in multiple ways this Christmas. The work they do is so necessary, as some of our staff have seen first hand through volunteering with them, and we’re happy to be able to help in any way we can.”
