Christmas miracle for charity Helping Hands

‘TWAS a Christmas miracle for a Leamington charity looking for a new home.

The Helping Hands Community Project – which supports homeless and vulnerable people in Warwickshire – has been given a second helping hand by Stoneleigh Park.

The charity was first gifted the use of a vacant building at the park last year to store donated items, before it was set to be refurbished for a new occupier.

And the team – which launched an appeal to find a new home this year – has just been offered another base at the estate to store items.

Project member Ian Johanssen said: “We are very grateful for the continued support and generosity of Stoneleigh Park.

“When we were first loaned a building here, it really was a lifeline and has since enabled us to continue and grow.

“We always knew that it was a temporary arrangement and remain keen to find a permanent home, but we are thrilled to have been found an alternative unit here so we can stay on site on the same basis.

“Moving in to our new home at this time of year really has given us a boost for the new year.”
