Rent A Skip

Mothers' Union members in Bristol engage with families who are having a difficult time by sponsoring them to go on the diocesan Away From It All holidays to give them some much needed quality time away with their families.

When the members went to visit one family who had been on a holiday they realised that this family did not have anything in their house except a TV and their garden was a complete mess.

The members then decided to sponsor a council skip to clean out the family's garden. While they were in the process of arranging this they also realised that the rest of the houses in the street had a similar problem so the members arranged for a skip to clear out all of the gardens in the street.

 "We could not believe when all the gardens were cleared out. Now we have a space to use behind our houses."
