Thursday 18th Brilliant people doing excellent work

These two terrific young men have worked themselves into the ground this week.  Meet Zack and Ryan, two students from Dromore High School who picked this week of all weeks to volunteer to do their school work experience placement with us!!    They have cheerfully and uncomplainingly lifted and shifted and swept and cleared and been such a HUGE help.  Thank you lads.  You have been brilliant.  

Meanwhile the sun has been shining as the painting and papering fairies have been in again putting the finishing touches to various bits and pieces in the Hope for Life Center.

                                     Do you like our funky new armchairs?   😊

Meanwhile we are taking advantage of the glorious sunshine to get the archway painted.  Doesn't that look so much better?

AND FINALLY.......................   ( drum roll please)

Our new Administrator Audrey Knowles had the honour of awarding Volunteer of the Month for October to Carly Martin ( on the left of the picture)    My goodness does this woman know how to work!   She has given us hours and hours of her time and expertise in decorating to strip and sand and fill and paint and wallpaper and everything she has touched has been done to perfection.   We didn't really know you a month ago Carly and now you are well and truly one of the family.  Thank you so much for all your help on Wellington House.
