We recently donated a large television to HULLHARP, a network of homelessness centres in the Hull area.
It was great to get this feedback from HULLHARP centre worker Ed:
“The television is in the communal area of one of our supported houses, which has 10 bedrooms and is nearly always full.
“At the present time, we have a number of Polish residents and they have been able to ask Polish-language channels (I’m a bit technically illiterate so I don’t know how this works)! This has been really beneficial because most of the Polish residents have little or no English and so having TV in their own language has been excellent in terms of providing a social focus within the house as well as entertainment.”
We know that supportive social networks are useful for anyone going through tough times, and we’re thrilled that our TV is helping people to give each other support in HULLHARP’s centre. And it’s remarkable how many people can be helped by a single donation to a homelessness centre!
