Who would have thought this unlikely pair would be collecting five grand cheque from the Police and Crime Commissioner? Well that’s exactly what happened in March. Seeing these two where they are today just goes to show that change really is possible when the right support is given.
Ian and Craig are two of our greatest success stories at Alpha House. That’s why we could think of no one better to pick up a £5,000 grant awarded to Alpha House. The donation was awarded to Alpha House to help us continue our work in reducing crime through changing lives.
Although this picture is only a couple of months old (taken in March 2019), both Ian and Craig have taken great steps in their lives. Craig has returned to full time work and left Alpha House, but he still likes to get involved when he can to show his gratitude. Ian is now on permitted work for Alpha House, helping in the office and visiting potential clients in prison to share the message of how he turned his life around at Alpha.
This generous donation from the Police and Crime Commissioner will certainly go a long way for us. It’s grants like this that help Alpha House continue its mission, and help more people like Ian and Craig reach their full potential in life.
From everyone at Alpha House Calderdale, we’d like to give the Police and Crime Commissioner a big thank you!
