York Road Project partnered with The lighthouse and The Besom to help a Woking family by decorating their house.  Four clients joined forces with people from the other charities and spent 3 days clearing rooms, washing walls, undertaking minor repairs and painting.  The final result was amazing and could have competed with DIY SOS!

It was a brilliant experience for both the family and our clients.  Often there is a view that homeless people don't want to work but our guys (and girls!) are desperate to give something back and have many hidden skills.  Their confidence bloomed and they learned about working and laughing as a team.  We very much hope that this project can be repeated soon as there are many people in Woking who could benefit from the support that YRP, The lighthouse and The Besom can offer.
