A few of the comments we have had back over the last week, from the families we supported –
“Hi my lovely delivery has just been. Thanks so much for taking time out and ordering the food shop for us. Wow our cupboards and fridge and freezer are full.. should have seen the children when the door knocked like its xmas. Thanks again so much”
“I am so grateful for your kindness. I am completely overwhelmed and emotional at what you have done for me. Thankyou so so much”
From a Social Worker – ” I am with the family now and dad cried when he saw what you have given him and his children, he is so thankful and can not believe how fortunate he has been. And he can not wait for the bed and storage too. We have looked at the clothes and they are amazing!
Dad said he is so happy he can’t thank you enough.”
You all make this possible by supporting us – thank you xxx
Thank you to Bournemouth Property Association for inviting us to their networking lunch at Harbour Heights Hotel today. After introducing our charity to the attendees, and explaining what we do, they generously collected £450! Thank you to everyone for your kind support
