Rose’s story

Rose desperately needed a new fridge to store medicine for herself and her vulnerable daughter.

Rose has a number of health issues herself and she also cares for her adult daughter who was born with learning disabilities and mobility issues.

Rosie tries to make ends meet on a low income but had no way to afford to replace the family’s fridge-freezer when this broke recently. This item is vital as, along with needed to store food, they both have medicine they need to keep refrigerated.

Your support has enabled us to provide Rosie and her daughter with this essential item. Thank you!

"It’s fantastic to see all the ways the community comes together to improve the lives of people in need. From undertaking challenges, to dress-up days, quizzes, raffles and cake-bakes, to donating, setting up a regular gift, volunteering or spreading the word, it all helps to ensure people living in hardship are warm, safe and fed and have the basics in life that we all deserve."
