Wolverhampton Home Receives Cash Boost to Convert Cafe Area Into Cool Retro Space

A Wolverhampton home received a much-needed cash boost from a convenience store following the opening of their 1000th branch.

One Stop, a subsidiary of Tesco opened its 1000th branch across the country and to mark the occasion, donated £1,000 to ten support services in the Wolverhampton area.

MHA Waterside House were amongst the support services in the area to receive the cash award for their work in supporting those who need care.

The home provides a safe and caring environment for up to 60 people living with dementia and will use the money to top up their funds and convert the cafe area into a retro space.

They are planning to revamp the area and include some vinyl’s to use as decor as well as a guitar, juke box, dartboard, and snooker table.

Michelle Jones, activity coordinator said:
“One Stop got in touch with us and told us about the new store and how they are supporting local support services.

“We were invited to the opening of the new store, in Silverton Way and then presented with a cheque for £1,000.

“Our residents love to dance so we have been thinking about renovating the cafe area and turning it into a dance/entertainment area so the donation will help immensely.

“We are looking to get our own pub/bar area as well so it’s going to be a lovely update which will be enjoyed by everyone.

“The residents were happy when we told them about the donation and are already asking when the renovation will take place.

“The money will contribute massively towards the changes and allow us to continue to meet the needs of our residents.”
