Volunteers transform Luton homeless charity courtyard
NOAH's inner courtyard has had a refreshing coat of paint '“ thanks to a group of Sainsbury's Bramingham staff who spent several Tuesdays giving the area a facelift.
Luton charity NOAH Enterprise offers hot meals, clean clothes and medical services to Luton’s homeless.
Chief executive Jim O’Connor said: “NOAH thrives on partnerships, not least with the business community.
Sainsbury’s is a superb example of how constructuive and helpful that relationship can be.
“For the past three weeks, a number of their staff have spent long days at our welfare centre repainting our inner courtyard and transforming it beyond recognition.
“They have made such a difference and in such a generous, willing and happy way.”
Bramingham supermarket manager Claire Fielder said she was delighted to see the way staff pulled together to give something back to the community.
She added: “We’ve enjoyed our time spent at NOAH and it’s great to think we’ve made a difference to so many people.”
