AJ Architecture Awards raise money for homelessness charity

This month’s AJ Architecture Awards raised more than £2,000 for national homelessness charity Crisis

The event, held last week at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel and hosted by comedian Dara Ó Briain, raised £2,172 excluding Gift Aid with 146 individuals giving an average donation of almost £15 each.

Crisis helps people directly out of homelessness and campaigns for the changes needed to solve the problem altogether. The AJ’s inaugural awards featured the chance to donate to Crisis, with those doing so also entered into a draw to win one of several signed copies of AJ columnist Ian Martin’s latest book Epic Space.

The money raised is enough to cover just over 83 places at one of the charity’s Crisis at Christmas centres, which provide warmth, vital services and the first steps out of homelessness. Alternatively, it could be used to help around 43 people gain the skills and qualifications to begin to turn their lives around, the organisation said.

AJ managing editor Will Hurst said: ‘We’d like to thank the AJAA audience for their very generous support of Crisis this year. We’ve spoken to the charity and they are delighted by the total raised.’
