Eight Lower Sixth pupils recently volunteered for Habitat for Humanity at their new premises in the Hillview Industrial Estate on the Crumlin Road in Belfast. With the help of the Changemakers Project, the warehouse next to Lidl will be transformed into Belfast’s first Habitat RE:STORE charity DIY store which is due to open in 2023. The shop will provide a fantastic support to the local communities in North and West Belfast by providing donated DIY products, equipment and furnishings at reduced prices. Our group were responsible for painting walls and the floor of the warehouse. They worked hard to complete the task in one day, with the help of Mr Spence and Ms McBeth. School-based workshops with our partner school De La Salle College will follow after the half-term break with group fundraising plans to be put into place for this worthwhile cause.
Our office is open 8:15am - 4:15pm Monday to Friday.
