Homeless Charity Receives Helping Hand from Axil

Axil Donates Food Vouchers to Corby Homeless Charity

Axil Integrated Services has provided £2,000 of Asda vouchers to local charity, Corby Nightlight, with support from our holding company, Regen. Working to relieve poverty among rough sleepers and homeless adults, Corby Nightlight operates in Corby and the surrounding area, distributing food vouchers to help homeless people survive during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The charity is local to Total Waste Management company, Axil, who operate across the whole of the UK and have their head office based in Corby.

Axil Integrated Services Managing Director, Edward Pigg said: “We were aware of Corby Nightlight and the fantastic work they do to provide food provisions, for the homeless community and those experiencing poverty, including families with low or halted incomes.

“We know they’re helping the local council to provide donations to housed homeless people and families in need and thought this was a targeted way to help them at this time.”

“We’re very proud of our team’s work on the market, and we think the results are plain to see. We have made significant improvements to both waste and recycling rates as well as raising housekeeping and health and safety standards across the entire site.”ould like to congratulate AIS for making the Cummins Environmental Gateway Successful Innovators List 2017. We have been very impressed with the quality of AIS’s innovation, and even more with the potential for environmental impact and savings. Together we can do more for innovation and the environment.”

The charity provides the vouchers to Corby Borough Council because the local authority has been tasked with finding housing for all homeless people in the area. The council then safely redistributes the vouchers to people in need.

Axil’s generosity has also prompted Asda to donate a monthly food hamper worth £50 to the charity.

Deputy store manager Nick Wood said: “We’re delighted to present the volunteers of Corby Nightlight with the first Asda monthly hamper of edible treats as a thank you for their hard work.”

Diane added: “Axil Integrated Services’ significant donation will enable us to provide food to those who need it for several months. This help is vital because, like many charities, we do most of our fundraising during the summer and won’t be able to do that this year. We expect another rise in demand for our services when councils are once again freed from the obligation of providing housing for homeless people.

“We’d also like to thank Asda for their kind donation as our volunteers do so much and making a donation to them is very generous.”
