“Our latest BE in the Community led us to lending a hand at The Haven in Wolverhampton. The Charity is an organisation that supports women and dependent children who are vulnerable to domestic abuse and homelessness.
The four volunteers on the day from BE included Mel, Oliver, Tric and I. We arrived at one of the hostels ready for a hard day’s work, fortunately the sun was shining so it allowed for some garden duties.
Mel and Tric worked tirelessly in the garden trimming every bush, hedge and tree – as well as tidying the vegetable patch – I think Alan Titchmarsh would be proud!!
Oliver and I tended to collecting all of the apples, raking the lawns and re-arranging and de-cluttering the hostels store rooms, hopefully a job well done.
Marta Rios, Engagement Volunteer Leader, from The Haven (pictured with the team) helped set up the day and continues to assist the Charity in her full time role and is a wonderful ambassador to the Charity.
The Haven are always looking for volunteers or donations with Christmas coming soon, please do contact us if you would like to make a donation or might like to provide Christmas presents or any unwanted items.”
