Creative communications agency drp volunteered at the Barons Court Project in Hammersmith, London this week as part of the team’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative. 

The Barons Court Project is a charity that has been running for 33 years, supporting people on low incomes who are vulnerable to mental health or homelessness.

A total of five team members from the London team participated in the barbecue, which was arranged by the charity. The team’s involvement on the day included speaking to those who attend the centre, helping to serve and clear up after the barbeque and ensuring that all the guests had a great day.

Head of pr and marketing at drp, Ryan Curtis-Johnson said: “We were grateful to Baron’s Court Project for allowing us to help them with their BBQ. It’s good to see the team come together and step away from the day job and give something back to those in need. 

"Giving back to a community costs nothing but your time and by speaking with the individuals it’s clear that this particular project provides vital support to the local community. It was nice to speak with the guests and hear their stories. A huge thank you to the Barons Court Project for having us.”

Director of the Barons Court Project, Michael Angus said: “We were so delighted to have the drp team come and visit us and be a part of our community here at the Barons Court Project. It’s really important to have visitors to reduce the stigma around mental health and homelessness, in order to build connections to the wider community. 

"Our group at the project really enjoyed speaking to the team, as many live alone or are homeless, so having that human contact is just want they needed to brighten up their day."

To help support the Barons Court Project charity, the drp team collated a variety of household items, such as tea, coffee, and shower gels for each person to take away and keep for themselves. This is one of many CSR projects which drp team members take part in throughout the year.
