A disabled woman from Skegby was given a welcome boost this week after her home was treated to a surprise makeover thanks to big hearted lettings agents.

Amiee Harrison, 24, who recently underwent surgery to improve her mobility, was helped to secure her new flat in Elder Street by Framework.

The charity stepped in when Amiee was at risk of losing her home.

This week Hunter Property Ltd, based in Mansfield and Ashfield decided to transform the property when they learned of Amiee’s recent struggles with homelessness and depression.

Aimee said: “I’ve had a very difficult few months and would never have been able to achieve such a feat alone as my leg is still in a cast and have no movement in my left hand.

“My flat was flat is horrible, bare and damp, I really can’t thank Framework or Hunter Property Ltd enough.”

The Hunter Property team spent two full days preparing and repainting the walls, repairing skirting boards, building furniture and adding curtains, lighting and carpets to the property.

The team also renovated the garden to create a space Amy can enjoy.

Nigel Barnes, CEO of Hunter Properties said: “We have been operating for just 18 months but wanted to give something back to the community we serve.

“When Framework approached us about Amiee’s dilemma we were more than pleased to do what we could to get her back on her feet with a home that is fit for her and she can take pride in.

We hope that by redecorating her home just as she wants it,

“Amiee will have a new start in life.”
