Safety Boots Help Give Homeless Man A New Start

Environment Times is raising money for the homeless this winter by creating a 'virtual ecohouse'. PK Safety is one of the donors. They write: PK Safety has given a previously homeless man a free pair of Lightyear Safety Boots as he starts his new life working for a builder.

PK Safety blackbootsThe plight of homeless people in the UK is a major concern, with numbers rising annually since 2010 to 4,134 in 2016 . Without intervention and support, the number of people living rough on the streets of UK cities and towns will continue to escalate.

PK Safety is a UK-wide supplier of health and safety clothing and equipment. The company is based near Caerphilly in South Wales.

In early January, Environment Times, a print and online news provider for the environmental sector, contacted PK Safety. A young man was in need of a pair of Safety Boots. He had just secured a job with a local builder, but could not afford Safety Boots. The young man had previously been homeless and had addictions, and the new job provided him with the chance to rebuild his life.

"We wanted to help," said Roy Wells, PK Safety's Managing Director. "It is not much, but if a pair of Safety Boots helps give this gentleman a new start in life, then we are thrilled to offer our support."

PK Safety provided a pair of Lightyear Voyager Safety Boots; the highest specification of Safety Boot in the range. The Voyager Safety Boot has a waterproof membrane that surrounds the whole boot's interior and is ideal for people who work outdoors or in wet conditions.

"As a business, we believe that we have a responsibility to support our local community," explained Wells. "We are involved in many local charity initiatives, which we feel is very important."

"I wish this gentleman all the best in his new job and hope that we have just helped him along his journey. And, we will have helped keep his feet both dry and safe!"
