A frail pensioner forced out of her home by mould and rats has moved back in – after locals raised 120K for a makeover. Disabled Pat, 70, had become chronically ill from damp covering walls and furniture in her bungalow and moved out just before Christmas. Generous businesses and kind locals then rallied together to complete a monster makeover after her living conditions were revealed on social media. The property in Swindon, WIlts., had electricity in just two rooms and the central heating hadn’t worked for two years. Pat now has a new boiler and furniture, the rats have been pest controlled, the rotten flooring taken up and the damp dehumidified. More than 150 local people and 70 companies helped to clean and refurbish the house – and she has now moved back in.
