Lewis House is now open

I prounce this building open.
Very sadly, Bolton Women’s Aid have today officially opened Lewis house. I say ‘sadly’ because they have already filled it with people escaping domestic abuse.

Lewis House is a brand new, purpose built refuge. It has 22 self-contained apartments of various sizes, including 4 with wheel chair access. It is rather different to the Georgian building they started off with in the early 70’s where 10 families shared just 6 bedrooms.

Steve Lewis was asked to open the house. His late wife started the ball rolling when she heard of someone desperately pleading to the Samaritans to find an escape.

If anyone wants to contribute please click on the button on the donations page. I make sure that anything donated through the Paypal site goes directly to them.

- Steve.
