We were so blessed to have another team of Ampleforth College students (SHACworks) spend a week giving their time again this year.
They carried out three projects in Tang Hall. The first was a decorating project for a lady who had just been given her first permanent home. They decorated the hallway, the kitchen and the bathroom and did a fantastic job!
The second was a garden for a mum of four. The garden was covered in stinging nettles and wasn’t safe for the children to play in. The team strimmed and dug the nettles out, they put up a swing set, created raised beds to grow things in and even laid some turf. The family were over the moon.
The last project was another garden for another family. The team dug up the front garden – not an easy task in the 27 degree heat! They laid some shingle down and also painted a huge garden fence in the back garden.
The teams went above and beyond to give to these families. It was incredible to see how hard they worked and the difference they made. We are so thankful for them! Here are some photos of their work…
… and after!
