European animal welfare charity Four Paws UK has become the 100th organisation to rent office space in the CAN Mezzanine, the social enterprise that provides affordable office space to the third sector.CAN Mezzanine runs two sites in Central London which have saved its clients more than £2.2 million last year, according to independent social impact research.Marie-Claire Macintosh, Four Paws Head of Programmes, said: “We were struck by the welcoming atmosphere rather than the exploitative, corporate and unfeeling offices we had visited before. We were encouraged that we would be surrounded by other NGOs rather than corporate organisations”.“Affordability and location are the primary reasons why our customers come to CAN Mezzanine,” said Peter Murray of CAN Mezzanine. “We run quality buildings with business efficiency, passing on as many benefits to our customers as possible. But being a charity ourselves, we understand the needs of our customers and can offer something more tailored”.Plans are underway to open a third site in north London later in the year and a feasibility study is being undertaken for a CAN Mezzanine in east Croydon.www.can-online.org.uk  26 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img
