Event Date: February 2023
Firstly, I would like to extend a huge thank you on behalf of the Hetty’s staff team, volunteers and clients, for your everyone’s help and support to enable this project, the purchase of a FOREVER HOME for Hetty’s to happen.
We are thrilled to say, that after much hard work, planning, bid writing and negotiation, on 4th January 2023 the sale of Burnaby House was secured and we became very proud owners of this beautiful Grade ll listed building.
With a large team of daily volunteers, plenty of cake, chocolate, coffee and heaps of motivation we worked tirelessly for 5 weeks to renovate Burnaby House and transition from Marlborough House to our new home. I am also very proud to say that within this timeframe, Hetty’s services continued to run as normal supporting vulnerable families across Nottinghamshire.
Hetty’s managed to recruit many volunteers through daily posts and videos on social media, newsletters and pleas via Hetty’s WhatsApp groups. The voluntary in kind support we received was absolutely overwhelming, we had painters pledging to decorate a room, labourers, plasterers, joiners, carpet fitters, many of which just asked for Hetty’s pay for materials and they gave their time freely. The kindness and generosity of people will stay in my heart always.
