Helping London’s Homeless

In Collaboration with Under One Sky

As we head towards the end of what has been a truly extraordinary year, to mark the festive season the team at MAR felt that we too should do something a little out of the ordinary.

Like the majority of businesses, at Christmas it’s not unusual for us to spend money on activities such as client entertaining and staff parties. Clearly with Covid restrictions in place, this has not been an option for 2020.

So instead, this Christmas we have partnered up with a remarkable organisation called Under One Sky – a charitable concern that supports the homeless on the streets of London.

As a result, we have diverted some of the money that we would normally spend on entertaining and social merriment directly to the good people at Under One Sky.

However, not only has the company donated a sizeable sum, last weekend saw a group of volunteers from MAR and Sovereign FM hitting the streets of London, with the team from Under One Sky.  A cross section of people from across the business – including some teenage family volunteers – helped to distribute to the homeless and vulnerable some of the much needed items purchased through our donation, including sleeping bags, thermal clothing, hats, gloves, toiletries, food and hot drinks. And all in a Covid-safe way.

As well as handing out these vital items on a bitterly cold evening, our team of volunteers chatted and interacted with the people that they met and this engagement is often just as important in supporting those individuals that find themselves living on the streets.  

A massive thank you therefore to our hardy group of volunteers and to the team from Under One Sky who made it all possible.

In this most difficult of years, collectively you all did a very good thing and certainly embraced the true spirit of Christmas…
