LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – There was a big police existence at a Lexington dwelling Thursday morning, but not for a cause you may well count on.
Officer Ryan Holland, with the community’s aid, astonished a Lexington female with a house makeover.

“You could bounce up and down on this floor like a trampoline the entire property would bounce,” Holland mentioned.

“I just hope that she is aware of that she’s cared for,” claimed Officer Holland. “People in this neighborhood adore her and she’s acquired a secure residence now.”
From floor to ceiling, every little thing in the household has been changed. Prior to, Bell applied anything she could to protect against her outdated roof from leaking, even tacking sheet pans to the ceiling.
“Those are for baking, not putting on your ceiling no more,” claimed Holland.
Now, Bell is back again in her newly restored house, just in time for Xmas.
“Oh, it is stunning. Oh, I just appreciate everything. I ain’t under no circumstances been so delighted in my daily life,” said Bell.
