A homeless charity in the West Midlands has received a seasonal donation from a communications company that specialises in the materials handling sector.
Changeworks Communications, which supports Briggs Equipment, Hoppecke Industrial Batteries, Cooper Specialised Handling, Wilmat Ltd and Somerstotalkare with public relations and marketing, has given £500 to support Birmingham City Mission this Christmas.
Established for 46 years, the charity supports those in need including the homeless, struggling families and the elderly. It has its own Resource Centre in the heart of the city where it offers clothing and free food, as well as support, friendship and access to rehabilitation programmes.
“We are very grateful for the kind donation made by Changeworks,” commented the charity’s Chief Executive, Wes Erpen. “The £500 will help go towards the refurbishment of our new Care Centre for the homeless where over 200 people each week will be able to access our services”
Sue Tupling, managing director of Changeworks, added: “This is a charity very close to our hearts and it is our pleasure to have donated to such a worthy cause.
Each year we give a percentage of our profits to charities and are really proud to be giving something back this Christmas.”
Changeworks has also donated £250 to the National Autistic Society which helps children with Autistic Spectrum Conditions.
The company has established itself as a leading communications agency providing a wider range of services in public relations, marketing, video production and social media.

About Birmingham City Mission
Since 1966 Birmingham City Mission has had a holistic ministry. On one hand, evangelism – the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been proclaimed in the city centre and in the community. On the other hand, social action – God’s love has also been expressed through many caring projects and thousands of people have been practically helped.
In this new century we intend to continue this important task of reaching the unreached to bring comfort, care and hope to the needy and marginalised.
