A youth homeless charity has been cleaning up a house to help provide homes for young people in Luton.

LAMP, a local Christian charity, joined up with the workers from Vauxhall to restore a house on Napier Road.

Helen Snowden, at LAMP, said: “We aim to support and provide opportunities for homeless people aged 16-25, this project is a great opportunity to provide homes for some of them.”

Cherie Denton, Community Relations Officer at Vauxhall, said: “At Vauxhall we want to help with charities for young people and we have been supporting LAMP since last year.”

“LAMP help them get homes and the money we donated was used to kit them out and provide transport for interviews.”

Cherie and five Vauxhall workers spent their day cleaning the house and garden and building the flat pack furniture,from the charity.

She said: “We all worked really hard and it was a great day, we felt like we had made a difference.”

Helen said: “We have a good relationship with Vauxhall and are grateful for the work they have done for us.”

“Now that it is all cleaned up, we hope to start moving people in this week.”
