HYUNDAI MOTOR SUPPLIES VEHICLES TO SUPPORT 'CRISIS AT CHRISTMAS' HOMELESS CHARITY INITIATIVE

HYUNDAI MOTOR SUPPLIES VEHICLES TO SUPPORT 'CRISIS AT CHRISTMAS' HOMELESS CHARITY INITIATIVE

16 Hyundai vehicles have been supplied to support C­­risis  the national charity for single homeless people.

The cars provided are a mixture of Santa Fes, i800s and i30's and are used by the dedicated volunteers who support the charity in London over Christmas.

The festive season is the charity's busiest time of the year and the cars will help carry supplies and transport individual guests and volunteers around London from the 22 to 30 December.

Jon Sparkes, Crisis' Chief Executive, said: "Christmas should be a time for family and friends, for warmth and celebration, yet for homeless people it can be one of the hardest times of year  a cold, lonely time to be suffered rather than enjoyed.

"Crisis at Christmas is only possible due to the generosity of our volunteers and donors, such as Hyundai, who have come together to make Christmas happen for some of society's most vulnerable people."

Crisis at Christmas will see a dedicated team of more than 9,000 volunteers supporting 4,000 homeless people over the Christmas period, helping them to take their first steps out of homelessness. More than 6,000 people slept rough in London at some point last year, an increase of 77% since 2010.
