How you can help?
We are currently short of funds to complete the refurbishment so while fundraising continues we are recruiting willing volunteers to help with painting, fitting kitchens, bathroom, toilets, fixing shelving etc and landscaping the community garden. Do you know anyone who would be willing to spend a couple of hours helping a good cause?
