Farewell to our Homebase Supporters

01st August 2018

Homebase staff Luke and Sue with young people at our first Enable project.

We were very sad to say goodbye  to our friends at the York Homebase store on Foss Islands Road last month, following the closure of the store.

Homebase have been fantastic supporters of our SASH Active programme over the last four years. They have supported our Enable projects by donating gardening and decorating supplies, as well as staff time for the majority of the 18 projects that we have completed so far.

Homebase staff have also participated in two Dragon Boat Challenges with SASH supporters and young people, helping to raise much needed funds for our work.

Above all, Homebase have donated numerous items to the SASH young people who were moving on to their own tenancies. From lampshades to loo brushes,  laminate flooring to light bulbs and toilet seats to tool kits they excelled themselves with their generosity. Around 30 young people who have moved on from our Supported Lodgings project in the past 4 years will have items in their new homes donated by Homebase!

We would therefore like to say a HUGE thank you to all of the staff at Homebase for their generosity, kindness and willingness to support the work that we do. You have all been amazing and have made a positive difference to the young people that we work with. Thank you from all at SASH.
