LHA London spruce up family services


A huge thanks to the wonderful team from the head office of LHA London who recently volunteered to improve the family centre space. Accommodation provider LHA London have generously supported the Centre for several years, paying for new showers and cooking facilities in the hostel, but were keen to get involved in a different way.

The thirteen strong team came full of enthusiasm and energy to get the job done and quickly broke off into teams to get started on their tasks.

The team created a toy bank for parents to be able pick a present when it’s their child’s birthday, organised our food and clothing store so clients can access the items they need and tidied the garden in the child’s playground.

Family services coordinator Winne says “Staff here are always busy supporting the families and have limited time, so it was great to get the family services space looking clean and fresh for the families to enjoy.”

The volunteers including CEO Tony Perkins enjoyed the opportunity to give something back and to learn more about the work of the Centre.

Tony says: “The day was a phenomenal chance to support Cardinal Hume with a different resource; elbow grease! It was a great opportunity for our team to learn about the variety of help and support services provided by the Cardinal Hume Centre who we’re proud to support. Our group learned critical team building skills, improved communication and out of the box thinking. It was an excellent experience that our people are still talking about today! A huge thank you to my team for the effort and results and an equally huge thank you to Trish and her team for opening the door to Cardinal Hume Centre to give us an insight into their valuable work. LHA London is proud to support Cardinal Hume’s objectives.”
