Members of Hull Chamber of Commerce Working Together

Sarah Robinson and Tim Wilson P

Sarah Robinson and Tim Wilson met by chance, on 26th April 2018 at the Hull Chamber of Commerce Network Meeting at Cave Castle. And a marvellous working partnership has been formed.

Sarah is on a one-woman mission; to provide social housing for those individuals and families that are on either low income, with disabilities, are disadvantaged, underprivileged, with mental health issues, or learning difficulties, with substance misuse problems (alcohol or illegal drugs), homeless, risk of homeless and formerly homeless, young people, ex-offenders, and people fleeing domestic violence, in Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire.

Tim is passionate about the green therapy initiative and how everyone can benefit from understanding how produce is grown. One of his aims is to have a horticultural qualification established in Hull. Tim is involved with a range of community activities, including Hull and District Family Mediation Service, Rooted In Hull and The Princes Trust. Tim is a Justice of the Peace (JP), and currently area chairman of CRUSE Bereavement Care. His is an active member of Hull Minster and a member of the outreach team supporting rough sleepers.

Working together ….. A Hull dad wandered the streets until his feet bled for 3 whole days. He wanted to rebuild his life. He lived in a hostel and volunteered with Rooted In Hull, which is a community gardening project. Tim approached Sarah to see if she could help.

Mrs Robinson’s Homes secured him a 1 bedroom flat, which gave him the chance to live independently and see his children. Mrs Robinson’s Homes launched an appeal on Social Media for help towards his first month’s rent. The appeal raised £887, which paid for Jason’s first month’s rent, some gas, electric on the meters, food and some essential items for his new home. Mrs Robinson’s Homes will now be able to help another individual or family in the future.
