Kind-hearted bosses at Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College are giving over their Hammersmith campus to the homeless this Christmas.
They have teamed up with the street charity Crisis to allow the campus to be used as a day centre for homeless people between December 23-30.
Volunteers will donate their time and skills to provide comfort for some of the capital's most vulnerable people.
Visitors will be offered food, clothing and an opportunity to take advantage of dentists, doctors and podiatrists, as well as the college's hair salons, IT suites. They will also receive advice on education and training.
College staff have already been busy raising money for the charity, and last week garnered £700 from a pub quiz.
Principle Paula Whittle said: "We are very proud to be working together with Crisis to deliver Crisis At Christmas 2010 and warmly welcome everyone visiting us over the festive period.”
Crisis wants to use nine buildings across London for its campaign and is looking for its final one.
Leslie Morphy, Crisis CEO, said: “Without the extraordinary generosity of building donors year in, year out, Crisis At Christmas would not be possible. This year we have already found eight suitable buildings – we are now searching for our final one.”
An ideal building would be between 20,000-60,000 sq ft with a mix of large and small inside spaces, functioning utilities, a kitchen, parking and close to public transport.
The charity handles all utility costs, insurance and planning and is pledging to return buildings in their original state, if not better.
