Braeburn Estates and the South London Procurement Network were the lead sponsor behind a major effort to provide much-needed hot meals to homeless, vulnerable, lonely and elderly residents of Lambeth.
On Wednesday 16th December 2020, Braeburn Estates (the joint venture between Qatari Diar and Canary Wharf Group, behind Southbank Place) and the South London Procurement Network (SLPN) were the lead sponsor behind a major effort to provide much-needed hot meals to homeless, vulnerable, lonely and elderly residents of Lambeth.
Supplying over 2,000 hot meals from a collection of local restaurants across the Borough of Lambeth, volunteers from Braeburn and SLPN were on hand to deliver the meals to those most in need, as well as support from other sponsors, including Waterloo’s Park Plaza Hotel team who cooked the meals in the restaurant’s kitchen.
Howard Dawber from Braeburn Estates, commented: “The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the entire world, however, it has been especially difficult for the elderly, vulnerable and those most in need. We are just happy to be in a position to give something back to the local community and provide hot meals to people that don’t always know where the next one is coming from. A number of our team also volunteered on the day to ensure the operation ran smoothly and successfully.”
Taking the role as major sponsor of the event, spearheaded by Councillor Ibrahim Dogus, representing the Bishop’s ward of Lambeth Borough Council, Braeburn Estate’s donation totalled £10,000 and is part of an extended programme of charity initiatives and support work throughout 2020.
Southbank Place, which is being developed by Braeburn Estates, also recently led an internal food drive for Waterloo Food Bank to provide essential food items to help struggling local families this Christmas.
