House to a Home uk 2017
In September 2017 we took on our first major UK based project. We discovered that a family known to us in Bolton had been living for many years in a house that had fallen in to a state of squalor and disrepair. They had no way of pulling themselves out of their situation alone so we stepped in with the support of local businesses and trades people to offer help and hope. Click below to see just what this project involved and the difference it has made to this family in need.
south Africa 2017
Our 2017 trip to South Africa was another amazing trip changing lives both near and far. A team of 24 adults and young people from the UK went to Johannesburg and served for 2 weeks to help transform a derelict community building into a pre-school education centre offering free places for children who otherwise would have no access to education.
