Big gift to local charity

Big gift to local charity Image

Docklands real estate agency Nelson Alexander has donated $10,000 to local charity The Big Umbrella.

Accepting the cheque last month, Big Umbrella founder Justin Dickenson said the money would be used to buy and equip a refrigerated food trailer.

Mr Dickenson said: “It means we can get more food to people in need.”

The Big Umbrella feeds homeless people at Flinders Street Station every Wednesday and Thursday night between 7.30pm and 9pm.

Mr Dickenson encouraged Docklanders to pitch in and help with the activity.

“We’re eternally grateful to Nelson Alexander for this generous gift,” he said.

Nelson Alexander principal David Anderson said he was pleased to be part of a fund raising gift to a local charity.

The money came from “Foundation Day” in May, when 16 Nelson Alexander offices donated their fees from an auction.

Since 2005, the Nelson Alexander Charitable Foundation has distributed more than $2 million to charities.
