Seven people in Wolverhampton have been housed through the partnership with charity Hope Into Action Black Country.
And it has seen one tenant – named ‘Glenn’ – turn his hand to churchyard maintenance amid coronavirus to transform the area.
He started work around the grounds of Holy Trinity Church in Heath Town after his recovery programme, computer and literacy classes were cancelled.
And his efforts to tackle the overgrown grounds has landed him praise by members of the public who have passed by – thanking him for his work.
An elderly man, who hadn’t been to the churchyard for a while, thanked him for allowing him to find the graves of his parents, which had previously been obscured from view.
