We provided more Ashleys Bears for the new intake of children at the Domestic Violence Refuge.
Also – birthday gifts and essentails going to families in poverty
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!
Thank you to The Entertainer in Poole for choosing us to support. They have donated £1,000 to us, which is fantastic!!! This will be used to support families by providing food shops over the summer holidays
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!!
Just been to the cheque presentation BBQ for Corfe Mullen Carnival – received a fantastic amount of £1240.00!!! This will be spent supporting families during the school holidays with food shops and school uniforms. Thank you so much.
