PAINT IT BACK Seagulls Christmas appeal.
Instead of sponsoring a goat (not that this isn’t extremely worthwhile) why not donate to Seagulls so we can give away paint to those around the city who cannot afford to make their house a home. We understand just how important our surroundings are to a stable and happy home life. Paint doesn’t fix problems but walls freshly painted the colour you choose certainly helps. Here are some quotes from people we have already helped:
‘Thanks again for the paint! It really helped one of my clients out who is in a sticky situation. She has previously been homeless and has recently gained her new tenancy which she is slowly settling into. She will use the paint to make her flat more homely and increase the chance of her settling into the tenancy and remaining there long-term. Her flat gives her a safe haven from abuse and sex work, and we hope she considers her new flat a safe place to stay permanently.’
Jane’ – has 10 children 9 living at home, 4 under the age of 5. She had been experiencing domestic abuse (coercive control) for 18 years and her abuser left the house in the summer. Jane really wanted to reclaim her space and redecorate the house so she and the children feel more at ease and at home in it.
Donating to our PAINT IT BACK appeal means money to support Seagulls and gives paint to help those most in need.
