  • DIY SOS volunteers come to rescue of church with final project

    A church hall in Hastings has been given a dramatic makeover after 18 DIY SOS volunteers from AmicusHorizon came to its rescue. When the group arrived at St Mary's Church in High Street, Hastings, they found a hall looking "tired and dull". Now the venue has been given a stunning transformation following the team's hard work which included painting the walls and ceiling, repairing stonework around the ornate windows, cleaning fans and lights, and creating a stunning mural. AmicusHorizon's DIY SOS programme offers a group of unemployed and low waged volunteers the opportunity to learn DIY and decorating skills over a five week course.
