Happy Holidays everyone!

Back in January, we combined a social focus with our curation of future city skylines. Teaming up with LandAid to promote the donation of models to the platform and in turn, donate to people who need a hand.

With the help of over 100 architecture practices this year, VU.CITY is now showcasing more than 500 consented schemes in our interactive cities platform. You can now see VU.CITY on display at the NLA on Store St.

A huge appreciation to everyone who has kindly submitted a model. 

Thanks to you, we have raised £8,650!

 

How can I help the homeless this Christmas?

If you would like to do a little something to help the homeless this year, below are some of LandAid’s fantastic recommendations:

  • Host a Christmas Drinks Party and donate the funds to charity
  • Tell Streetlink – download the app to report when you see someone sleeping rough
  • Buy a few basics for them; a hot soup, coffee, sandwich or even a toothbrush and toothpaste will be greatly appreciated
  • Acknowledge them, and stop for a chat when you have some time
  • Contact your local homeless shelter to volunteer – the local causes are always in need of assistance

From all of us at VU.CITY, let us wish you the happiest of holidays and a wonderfully prosperous 2019.
