Belmayne collects for homeless

Dronfield-based financial planners, Belmayne, are teaming up with homelessness charity, Pathways of Chesterfield, to provide practical assistance to those who sleep on the streets.

The independent advisers are inviting local residents to bring donations of clothing, food or toiletries to their Chesterfield Road office by Friday December 10 to be passed onto Pathways.

The full list of items the charity is collecting includes:

  • Sleeping bags and small tents
  • Rucksacks
  • Small and medium-sized warm clothing for men and women, such as jeans, joggers, t-shirts, jumpers, hoodies and coats
  • New underwear for men and women
  • Food that can be prepared with water, such as Cup-a-Soup and Pot Noodles
  • Bottled water
  • Toiletries – shampoo, conditioner, deodorant and shower gel

Jon Stevens, a partner at Belmayne, said: “A winter on the streets of North Derbyshire cannot be a welcome prospect for anyone. Pathways is somewhere the homeless and those at risk of homelessness can go for help and we want to ensure there are supplies available for all who need them. Anyone who would like to donate to this appeal is welcome to drop off items at our premises during office hours and we will ensure they reach the charity.”

A volunteer handler is also available to accept donations at one of Pathways’ buildings, 106 Saltergate, Chesterfield, on Wednesdays between 10am and 12 noon. For more information, telephone (01246) 498204 or visit

Pathways of Chesterfield is one of four organisations being supported by the Belmayne Foundation this year. All proceeds from its fundraising activities will be split equally between them.
