Hunts Post readers have voted for Cornerstone Care in Confidence for a DIY SOS-style makeover.
The charity, which offers counselling to men and women facing unplanned pregnancy or post-abortion stress, has won The Hunts Post and SJS Property Services competition for a facelift by a massive majority, receiving more than 2,500 votes.
It has recently moved to a new home in Trinity Place, Huntingdon, and the building needs a bit of a brightening up.
The other two finalists were Thongsley Fields Primary School’s Breakfast Club (817 votes) and the Commemoration Hall, Huntingdon (695).
Helen Turley, Cornerstone centre manager, said: “I am delighted and excited. We have only recently moved into a new building and we’ve not been able to have an open day yet as it is dreary.
You may also want to watch:
“We want it to be bright. People come in here at their worst moments, they are in a bit of shock. We want the rooms to have a calming effect but not dreary.”
The charity also works by appointment at Hinchingbrooke School and other secondary schools in Huntingdon.
