Recently we have been supported by two charities in the PCC unaccompanied minor homes. ‘Mission Direct’ have been sending us volunteers twice a year to do gardening or house renovation. The volunteers then bring gift in kind and finance to support the work they do. The young people in the houses have really benefitted from nonessential work being focused on (i.e. gardens, kitchen overhauls and other communal area asphetics). It also been a joy for the maintenance staff to have 5 star quality cleaning products all year.
We also had the support of the ‘Red Army Riding Club’ who are a motorcyle club which chose us as their Christmas charity. They delivered on their motorcyle chistmas campers to our young people in their houses and raised a considerable amount of money towards our charity.
