To mark ten years of practice, our founding directors Jim Webster and Murray Henderson are taking on a 532-mile cycle challenge from Glasgow to Berlin to raise £10,000 for homelessness charity, The Marie Trust.
On Friday, 28 July, the challenge will kick off on a route passing iconic landmarks in Glasgow, Newcastle, Amsterdam, Osnabruck, Hannover, Potsdam, and finally, Berlin, where the pair first hatched the plan to go into business together while in a bar in the city with the same name.
HAUS Director Jim Webster said: "Berlin isn't just a destination; it's where Murray and I decided to build a company together. We are very grateful for a decade of success and want to mark this milestone by doing something to support those who’ve had a much harder ride in life. We chose The Marie Trust, who work tirelessly to support people affected by homelessness in Glasgow and beyond."
HAUS Director Murray Henderson said: "The significance of home is more than just a physical building. It's a safe haven, and for many people, it's a distant dream. We chose The Marie Trust because their mission to provide long-term solutions for homelessness aligns with our own commitment to good design that benefits communities and fosters sustainable growth.
“This cycling challenge means a lot to Jim and me as we are going back to where it all began and will give us time to reflect and consider the next ten years and our ambitious plans to grow beyond the UK.”
Frances McKinlay, Chief Officer of The Marie Trust, said: “We are very grateful HAUS has chosen to raise funds for our charity. We provide a range of services, supporting those who are homeless or at- risk, with an emphasis on respect for each person's dignity and a commitment to sustainable solutions."
