We help decorate!
Tracy’s story from North Wales
A very kind friend nominated me to ACTS during a time of devastation for my family. Complex issues in my relationship with my husband made him ill and over time he became abusive and had to leave the family home. None of us were coping very well at all and our once loving home became a house of bad memories.
ACTS became the bridge to gaining back some warmth in our lives. They offered to help me redecorate the bedroom that I had shared with my husband and had not slept in since he had left. With a little shuffle around it was now going to become my daughters new room, her excitement was contagious as we all slipped into designer mode. Having something else to focus on and look forward to was priceless. ACTS were very generous, they paid for all the decorating equipment such as wallpaper, paint brushes etc which I would not have been able to purchase myself alone.
I spent a lovely day with 2 of the ladies from ACTS. They were incredibly focused and hardworking but most of all friendly and warm. We sang and laughed as the room beautifully transformed.
ACTS brightened up the days during a time of darkness and I will never forget them. My children still talk about how kind you were to help us. They are growing up into very compassionate people, I think your kindness has rubbed off on them most of all.
Thank you from us all XXX

We treated them to a trip to the theatre and flip out. This lovely message was sent to us afterwards by the children.
