A home for the homeless
Our Bristol branch recently donated a 24ft container to local charity Help Bristol’s Homeless (HBH). The unit was set to be recycled and HBH were happy to take it off our hands and give it a new lease of life.
HBH is a non-profit, social enterprise with a mission to change the face of homelessness in Bristol. They believe that everyone should have the opportunity to live in a place that they can call their own. Their vision is to develop a site with containers, converted into self-contained studio flats, providing short-term emergency accommodation for people in need, giving them time to find a more permanent home.
We visited a festival recently and bumped into HBH. Our unit was on display at the festival and was totally unrecognisable. Fully refurbished by a team of volunteers, it now has a living area, kitchen, shower room and bedroom. We were truly blown-away after seeing the wonderful work that the charity do.
Mobile Mini can also offer support to any non-profit or voluntary organisations through our Community Involvement Programme which offers free of charge container hire. For a worthy cause, all of the company’s 16 nationwide branches can donate up to ten containers a year, at no cost, for up to six months.
