A HOMELESS shelter in St Albans is planning a makeover thanks to a generous donation from the St Albans Round Table (StART).
StART Chairman Jamie Ferguson visited Kent House, a centre for the homeless which provides temporary accommodation for up to 20 people, at the beginning of this month to hand over a cheque for over �1,000.
Senior supported housing worker at Kent House Abby Dennis, who approached StART for assistance, said that the centre was in desperate need of refurbishment: "It would be nice for the residents to have an improved communal space for leisure. We want to make the lounge and garden more inviting and homely."
She added: "The only garden furniture we have at the moment is a picnic bench and bench which were both donated and are in need of replacement. A grant for garden furniture would certainly create a better outdoor space for residents to use."

Following Abby's request, StART awarded the centre �1085 to help make both the lounge and garden more appealing. Abby and her team will be choosing colour scheme and new furniture with the help of all the Kent House residents.
