With our help, SPEAR supports about 600 people a year. Funding from the Berkeley Foundation has continued to pay for part of the salary of a Skills Development Officer, helping 64 homeless people receive training and improve their numeracy and literacy skills.
SPEAR is one of St George's Designated Charities and the staff have braved the elements and slept rough for the night, run half marathons and turned their hand to clay pigeon shooting in order to raise money for the charity.
In September 2014, a mix of professions including contractors, architects and lawyers played alongside St George staff in St George's 5-a-side Football Tournament. The event raised £27,500 for SPEAR, which will be match-funded by the Berkeley Group back to the Berkeley Foundation.
