Wakefield Security Firm Donates to Victim Support for National Home Security Month

At the start of National Home Security Month, which ran throughout October, Wakefield security company, Calder Security Ltd, pledged to donate money to Victim Support for each home installation and service conducted during the month. Now that the campaign has finished they have totted up the figures and they are pleased to announce that the final total has come in at £600!

Lesley McLean, manager for independent charity Victim Support in West Yorkshire, said:

“We are delighted that Calder Security have donated this money to Victim Support, which will help us make sure that victims of crime get the emotional and practical support they deserve. This generous donation will go towards the critical services we deliver – these include things like helping families at risk of domestic abuse get out of immediate danger, securing properties following a burglary and making sure young witnesses are prepared to give evidence in court.

As a charity we rely on donations from the public. If you are interested in donating to Victim Support, please visit our website for more information www.victimsupport.org.uk.”

Donating to this worthy charity, chosen because of its work supporting the victims of crime, is just one activity that Calder Security has been involved in over the duration of National Home Security Month. This includes themed blogs, guest blogging for the national campaign and answering security questions throughout the month.

Simon Cook, MD of Calder Security, said:

“Home Security Month has been a big success in terms of educating people about home security and sharing advice. Supporting such a worthy charity as well means that we’ve been able to make a positive impact on both preventing burglary and dealing with the consequences of it.”

National Home Security Month is an annual campaign backed by Yale whose purpose is to educate householders about home security issues and help them secure their homes. It takes place in October each year. See the website for more details www.homesecuritymonth.com
