Time to Bed down

Mon 1 Mar
Report written by Mikey

Michael and Andrew met up at the house of Mrs. I after taking on the hills, which had certainly made for a work out. They knocked on the door to be met with the wonderful question of 'Are you the two strong men here to help me?'

We certainly are

Masked up and all covid safe we got to work, the task at hand to swap around a sofa and single bed, downstairs and upstairs. Very much aware of the clean house, lovely paintwork we were very carful when moving furniture. Thankfully everything managed to fit through doorways and up stairs without the need of the much dreaded word

Making refugees welcome in Cardiff

Sun 28 Feb

Home4U provides a welcoming place for refugees and people who are seeking asylum. They offer friendship and support, English classes, recreational activities, a simple hot meal and practical help and information.

Their clients are deeply traumatised having fled their countries and families. The current hostile environment of the HomeOffice means they wait long periods for decisions. Without accommodation some are homeless. A warm, clean place to stay is essential and painting these flats will make it a home.

Wales and West Housing Association are providing them with a flat but it needs cleaning, wall paper stripping and painting. Where appropriate they would want to encourage refugee volunteers to help as well.

Please bring your own gloves, a mask and a bin liner if you want to save your clothes! Social distancing will be observed in the premises. The final location is confidential so will only be shared with those runners signed up.
