A home for the homeless

Our Bristol branch recently donated a 24ft container to local charity Help Bristol’s Homeless (HBH).  The unit was set to be recycled and HBH were happy to take it off our hands and give it a new lease of life.

HBH is a non-profit, social enterprise with a mission to change the face of homelessness in Bristol.  They believe that everyone should have the opportunity to live in a place that they can call their own.  Their vision is to develop a site with containers, converted into self-contained studio flats, providing short-term emergency accommodation for people in need, giving them time to find a more permanent home.

We visited a festival recently and bumped into HBH.  Our unit was on display at the festival and was totally unrecognisable.  Fully refurbished by a team of volunteers, it now has a living area, kitchen, shower room and bedroom.  We were truly blown-away after seeing the wonderful work that the charity do.
