We finished, finally at 4pm just in time for the return of Lee and the children. To say it’s been hard work would be an understatement, every single person who was involved over the last few days are simply amazing! The effort people put in to make this such a success has been outstanding, we set ourselves a really tough challenge but we pulled it off only with your help.
It was a very emotional homecoming for the family, the screams of joy and excitement said it all and the whole of North Hull who heard would agree. Lee and the children are overwhelmed but incredibly grateful to each and every one of you that donated and bought things, and to the people that have worked like mad the last 3 days to truly transform their new home.
We hit a couple of snags and changed a few things but all in all it’s turned out better than we could of ever hoped. The house aside, projects like this show that community does mater, and people of all persuasions and backgrounds can come together and produce something beautiful. You don’t need to be a big charity or company, you don’t need to have lots of money, all you need really is a little bit of love, compassion, kindness in your heart and commitment. This project is testament to the amazing people of Hull and we couldn’t of done it without you.
