Carlisle, Cumbria

Doing it right

The Lighthouse renovations include; a new fully fitted kitchen and appliances, new carpets and flooring, a new boiler, new sanitary ware and much more, as well as labour time throughout the duration of the project.

Those involved in the renovations were invited to a re-launch event where they visited the newly refurbished Lighthouse and chatted to some of the volunteers who work there.

Charity partner

Staff from Carlisle Eden Mind were also presented with a cheque for £3,000 as a result of fundraising by both Story Contracting and Story Homes.

The renovations to the Lighthouse are part of a two year charity partnership between Story Contracting and Mind and SAMH. To date Story have raised over £9,000 for the two charities.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Story Contracting, Story Homes and their subcontractors for the hard work and donations they have contributed as part of The Lighthouse renovation.

For those with lived experience of mental health and anyone experiencing a mental health crisis, the world can be a very lonely and scary place, and our new and improved Lighthouse building will ensure that visitors have a warm, safe place to come where they can be listened to and supported with respect and without judgement.
