New Kitchen for the White House
A brand new kitchen was fitted recently. Another excellent installation by Welham Kitchens and Bathrooms of Longbeck Estate.
Please continue to help via our Just Giving page or through EasyFundRaising.
We are most grateful to the Sirius Minerals Foundation for a grant of £5,000 towards the cost of a wider outside door with level access at the back of the building. This will enable wheelchair-users to enter without disturbing the users in the main hall.
We considered replacing the rough concrete drive way with tarmac but have been advised not to. The tarmac finish would not be as strong and in winter the smooth surface would make an excellent slide onto the main road.
We still need to find money for decorating and then the job will be DONE!
