These are some of the kind words received from families who have benefitted from a Trust grant:
"Thank you for the award towards the cost of my HGV licence course. This has helped me get my and my family’s life back on track and given me a sense of worth and well-being."
"I’d like to thank the Trust for the grant for a toolbox to help me progress towards my apprenticeship in mechanics. Without it I wouldn't have been able to excel as I have with such ease of access to reliable tools of my own after having to use my colleagues for a period of time. I was a man in need and the Trust pulled through and I can't thank them enough."
"Hi, I would like to thank you so much for the opportunity to get the tools which will help in the making of my job. I hope you can give others the opportunity and continue to help others like me who are in difficult situations with single parents who can’t help us as they are struggling themselves, again thank you so much."
“Hi, we would like to say a massive thank you for the grant towards clothes you have made for our two children. This really is a massive help and very much appreciated. Thank you so much again.”
“You generously granted £600 towards a deposit. You’ll be pleased to hear that I have moved and am doing well. I am confident that this move will allow me to start afresh and let me begin saving and turn my life around.”
“I am writing to express my gratitude towards the charity for helping my mother with financial support and allowing me to continue to attend my school. I would never have been able to experience the things I have experienced over the past five years. This ranges from sharing rooms with kids from different countries, to competing in our intense House competitions. These experiences moulded the character I am today and have given me the necessary skills I will need to be a success in the wider world. I have developed an open mindedness to people of all backgrounds, creed and colour, I have developed many social skills and have had opportunities that I would normally consider outside of my comfort zone.”
