As part of our commitment to Home-Start, the UK’s leading charity of expert, volunteer-based family support, we gave one of their local Home-Starts a helping hand. We transformed part of the headquarters of Home-Start HOST, which covers Oldham, Stockport and Tameside, at Ryecroft Hall to make it cosier and more comfortable for volunteers and members of the local community alike.
Ryecroft Hall is a vital space for the community, but was in need of refurbishment to improve it for the families, staff and volunteers that use Home-Start HOST’s services, so we stepped in. We sent 12 Sofologists and £8000 of donated furnishings, spending two days renovating the space to make it a more inviting place for the Home-Start team to use.
Charlotte Heap, Senior Corporate Partnerships Manager at Home Start UK, commented:
“The staff and families supported by Home-Start HOST have been utterly delighted with the transformation and the room is now being used and enjoyed by family groups, volunteers and staff. Having a comfortable, warm and thoughtfully designed space makes such a difference. We are extremely grateful and look forward to continuing this exciting partnership into the new year.”
