Chris Worsley was today appointed as a trustee of The Hirsche Foundation.

Established in 2018, The Hirsche Foundation is a local charity with the objective of relieving the poverty of the homeless in West Yorkshire. Having a strong focus on Kirklees, The Hirsche Foundation have established strong links and strategic partnerships with various local charities and organisations involved with helping the homeless, particularly, a strong working relationship with Kirklees Council.

Trustee, Stephen Chandler, said:

We recognise that no single person, charity or organisation can solve the problem of homelessness. It requires a concerted and joined-up approach. We see our role as two-fold – first, supporting and collaborating with the other local charities and organisations working with the homeless, and second, through our network of business contacts, providing employment and educational opportunities to the homeless to enable them to break the cycle of homelessness.”

Chris, owner of Easy Fireplace in Milnsbridge, has always been an advocate of Corporate Social Responsibility and implemented a ‘Give Back’ policy into his own business around 10 years ago to help make a difference in his local community. 

Mr Chandler said:

“We have known Chris for a number of years through our association with Huddersfield Town Football Club. We have always been impressed with Chris’s genuine desire to give back to the local community and his enthusiasm and desire to help those in need.

Chris is a natural fit for The Hirsche Foundation and brings with him a wealth of experience and a vast network of contacts that will help take The Hirsche Foundation forward. We are excited to welcome Chris on board and look forward to working with him.”

The Hirsche Foundation have revealed that, in partnership with Kirklees Council, they have a very exciting and innovative project in the pipeline for 2020 that will have a huge impact in the fight against homelessness. No details can be revealed yet so watch this space!
