Charity abseil for Hopscotch Women’s Centre
In honour of Hopscotch Women’s Centre celebrating its 25th anniversary, more than 80 people, including the Mayor of Camden, took part in an abseil challenge in central London – raising more than £43,000 so far to help women who face domestic abuse.
The abseil took place from the top of an 18-floor building on Euston Road, Regent’s Place.
Those taking on the challenge included Councilor Nasim Ali, the Mayor of Camden and long-term supporter of Hopscotch, Hopscotch’s CEO, Benaifer Bhandari, as well as David Walker, the COO of British Land, owner of Regent’s Place.
Hopscotch Women’s Centre, which is based on Hampstead Road, offers support services for women impacted by racial and gender inequality, domestic abuse and isolation.
Earlier this year Regent’s Place hosted free employment training to jobseekers in Camden as part of its ongoing employment training programme Bright Lights.
In partnership with training provider, The Launch Group, the Bright Lights initiative offers training across a range of jobs – including security, front of house, and reception roles, helping local residents to develop essential skills for employment.
Pupils in the Camden area received training and support on valuable skills such as building teamwork, communication, and interview skills.
Support for the National Literacy Trust
Last year we helped parents keep children reading during the summer holidays as part of our celebrations to mark British Land’s 11-year partnership with the National Literacy Trust. At Regents Place, we welcomed 235 school children from Christ Church CE Primary School, Netley Primary School and Richard Cobden Primary School for a storytelling session with professional storytellers Wendy Shearer and Alim Kamara, aimed at helping them fall in love with reading.
Since the programme launched at Regents Place, it has supported more than 1,600 school children and seen over 5,000 books donated across the city.
Proud to Be
The ‘Proud to Be’ programme encourages British children of BAME ethnicity to celebrate their cultural heritage and backgrounds.
Earlier this year, Regent’s Place hosted a celebration event at Netley Primary School, Euston, where children shared poems and spoken word on what cultural identity means to them.
British Land and Regent’s Place funded this programme as part of their wider social sustainability strategy.
