The weather was atrocious on 12th June 2019 but the brilliant team of volunteers who came to see us would not have their spirits dampened by a little bit of rain!

Following months of planning, a team of over 50 volunteers from across all sections of Avant Homes descended on us to undertake a DIY SOS style challenge in our new community room - Room 25 and our new Tech Hub space. In addition, they did a phenomenal amount of work in the gardens, grass-cutting and strimming everywhere to make our centre look smart.

The transformation on the day was unbelievable, building a new kitchen, painting virtually everywhere and building a new breakfast bar.

Our Chief Officer, Mandi said:

I literally cannot believe how much work has been achieved in just one day - their contribution is immeasurable and has saved us thousands of pounds, not to mention getting work done so quickly. We can't wait to welcome them all back when the room is complete and to welcome local people using the space for community-led activities and events.

Enjoying a well deserved buttie and cuppa!

We are really grateful for the support given by Avant Homes, if you'd like to help our work please take a look at our Corporate Partnership opportunities or donate here.
