How Your Giving Makes a Difference
You restored my faith in human kindness" - Sally
A life diminished by poverty, potentially unfulfilled due to economic circumstances, and the shadow of mental health decline are all present in our communities. But it doesn’t have to be like that. By raising money for us, you're helping people like Sally. Before the first lockdown, Sally became unwell and had to go on sick leave from her job at a hospice. The illness was hard to diagnose and progress was delayed by the lockdown. Coming to the end of her half-pay sick leave, she found herself struggling financially. She was referred to her local SVP group who made her a grant of £250. This was enough to get her through a rough patch, and she eventually recovered from her illness and is now back at work.
She says: “Thank you for the wonderful cheque. It has certainly helped me in these unfortunate times. You have restored my faith in human kindness. Words cannot express how grateful I am for your help. Thank you.”
