East Road Update

After completion of our five extra bedrooms at East Road in April, we have taken the time to refurbish the remaining 20 bedrooms. With the extra space we have been able to move residents around temporarily whilst this work is undertaken. Sadly last year it was reported that rough sleeping was up by 26%  making sure this is complete before the winter months when demand for rooms is particularly high.

We have been fortunate to have been supported by some wonderful local companies, who have taken days to come and help us paint and build new furniture.

These include.

  • Amphista
  • Hinxton Hall Conference Centre
  • Tesco Property

Ian Thompson from Tesco Property said “What a and rewarding day spent at Jimmy’s Cambridge, these guys do some amazing work for people experiencing homelessness. Tesco Property helped by painting 3 rooms and building bedroom furniture, which means 3 more people are off the streets”

Here are some photos of the progress so far.
