Thank you to The Veterans Foundation

Give Us Time would like to thank The Veterans Foundation for their generous grant.

The grant will go a long way towards funding our essential Operations Manager freeing up resources and enabling us to do more for our beneficiaries. For a small charity covering core costs is a significant challenge and this significant contribution will make a huge difference to all involved.

Thank you for supporting Give Us Time.

A poem to find peace

A recent email from a family, who benefitted from our services, has highlighted once again how a break away can really help in the recovery process. Glen suffers from PTSD and his respite break at the Heroes Haven Swanage was the chance for him and his family to reconnect after a long period of suffering and hardship.

“Heroes Haven Swanage was a very relaxing location and allowed me to gather my thoughts”, Glen explained, “I even started to write poetry in the gardens as I truly found peace. I have added the poem I wrote in the garden at Heroes Haven.”

Innovative use of ‘Dead Space’ in the Hospitality Sector

According to industry experts, bedroom and bed-space occupancy across the serviced accommodation sector (Resorts, hotels, cottages and B&Bs) has on average remained flat and ranges between 8 out of ten rooms to 7 in in ten rooms in the North of the country. From the data available in the EU occupation ranges from just three in ten to 7 in ten. There are clearly seasonal variations but minimising Dead Space is a challenge for all.

How to make the most of this spare capacity and make it profitable

A number of hotel and property owners, at home and overseas, are already donating their spare capacity to charity. The Military Charity Give Us Time assists Service families who are in need: the beneficiaries have suffered bereavement, physical injuries and mental illnesses, have challenging financial circumstances and/or separation due to deployment. The best way to employ your spare capacity is to donate it to charitable causes like Give Us Time.
