Astra supports homeless Drop-In-Centre by supplying and installing security system free of charge

Our help to Spruce the Goose

2020-11-13



A Bristol homeless charity has recently received a new security system free of charge courtesy of Astra Security.

The Wild Goose Drop-In Centre, based in Bristol,  is for people who are homeless or in extreme poverty and need.  The Centre provides much needed access to free meals, shower facilities, clothing, and other essential practical support such as a hub in signposting to appropriate voluntary and council services.

The Centre is currently undergoing a building refurbishment programme, known as ‘Sprucing the Goose’, and it made perfect sense to ensure that an up to date security system is included as part of this.  Astra Security decided to step in and have worked closely with their partners at DVS to supply and install new CCTV equipment, which includes Video entry, and all at no cost to the Charity.

Paul Beet, Managing Director at Astra Security said “ When I heard about the great work that the Wild Goose delivers, I was keen to be involved. There’s a lot of investment taking place through the refurb programme, and it made sense to offer the security system.    Paul went on to say “It’s an important part of our ethos at Astra Security to support local communities in this way.  And, with the impact of COVID-19, the work that the Wild Goose does is more important than ever before.”

Jonathan Lee, Chief Executive of inHope Charity said ‘I’d like to say a huge thank you to Astra for all their support.  They’ve had several engineers on site across different days, and we’re extremely grateful.  Making sure our volunteers, staff and the people who use our service are safe and secure is a key priority, so the security system is a huge benefit. It’s an important part of the wider refurbishment programme, which is soon to be completed.”
