GE Capital has announced it will support a local charity, The Julian Trust Shelter, throughout 2010.
The homeless shelter, based in Bristol, where GE Capital has offices, has also received £12,300 (€13,600) from the GE Foundation, the philanthropic organisation of GE.
GE Capital will run a volunteer community day to help upgrade the shelter’s dormitories, and will sponsor the trust throughout 2010 via fundraising activities, clothing and food collections.
“We are very pleased to be able to offer help and support to a local UK charity,” said Anne Williams of GE Capital UK in Bristol.
“The Julian Trust carries out fantastic work throughout the year and the shelter is a very important place for the homeless in Bristol. We are looking forward to working closely with the Trust and building this relationship throughout 2010.”
