Landlords donate new locks for Restore houses

Cheque handover

Andrew Simpson of York Residential Landlords Association hands cheque to Jonny Wooldridge



We are extremely thankful for a big donation from York Residential Landlords Association to meet the cost of fitting a new system of locks to all the rooms in our properties.

Over time the existing system had become unreliable. Our supplier had moved out of the city; tenants and staff faced too regular security problems as locks failed and temporary ones were fitted fitted awaiting a replacement barrel; replacements that often failed again.

So we asked local supplier, Lockfix of Walmgate, to fit new locks to every room in all our houses with a set of master keys for staff to be able to gain access to all areas if necessary. York Residential Landlords Association generously agreed to meet the cost of this work as a contribution to help homeless people in the city.

This is the latest in a number of generous donations from the Association over the years and Restore is grateful once again for their support.
