Builders Merchant Robert Price have donated ten much needed decorating packs to families in need living in Monmouthshire and Newport through Monmouthshire Housing Association (MHA) Dads Can project.
Dads Can is funded by the Big Lottery’s Bright New Futures which supports Dads and their families to achieve a brighter future through emotional support, advice and guidance and opportunities to improve quality family time and life chances.
The scheme also helps dads through a range of difficulties, be it lack of access to their children, dads living in poverty, those that feel depressed or some dads who just need someone to talk to.
Dad Jason said, “Receiving a paint pack was great, my girlfriend and I were over the moon as it means I can improve my home and not feel embarrassed to invite my children’s friends over to play”
Katie Double, Dads Can Coordinator said “Little things like brightening up a few rooms in the home can make a real difference to someone’s wellbeing.
Many of the families are working but only make enough money to pay the bills, therefore redecorating isn’t an option for these families who struggle to pay gas and electric and provide daily meals.’
“Robert Price are delighted to be able to support the ‘Dads Can’ initiative with the donation of decorating packs. We hope this donation reinforces the fantastic support offered by ‘Dads Can’ and makes a positive difference to ‘Dads’ and their families within the local community”- David Pattison, Robert Price.
