Following a request from Young People’s Social Care, we have provided furniture and a bed for a young mum setting up a new home
Thank you to Tony Wilson for donating two single beds, Tony and the staff at Glenigan for doing a collection to buy kitchen equipment, utensils etc, and Guy Morgan from D&L Haulage Dorset Ltd for delivering the beds and settee. We have a very grateful mum and daughter, who are re-building their lives following their stay at the refuge.
Thank you to Kaos Beds in Branksome, and Southern Domestic Appliances in Christchurch for providing us a very efficient, personal, confidential service. Local charity supporting local businesses, and vice versa!
We always feel humbled when we get lovely comments back from our referrals. A few comments we received last week –
“I just wanted to drop you a line to say how much I appreciate your help. By the nature of my work as a Housing Family Outreach Worker I am often working with clients who are struggling financially hence the high level of referrals from me. As I am often working with families in financial crisis the food shops you have provided have been an absolute godsend and has often meant the difference in being able to pay a weeks rent to avoid being evicted. The fantastic work you do is hugely appreciated!! Thanks so much for all your help!”
Another parent who had been through domestic violence – “Oh my goodness, I feel like I’ve won the lottery”,
And another parent who has been staying in the refuge and moved into her own property –
“Oh wow, thank you ever so much. My house would never have been made a home without you”.
We are grateful for all the support we receive from local companies and members of the public. Thank you al!!
