    Story

    My friend K and her 2 children have had a tough year. Her husband/their Dad was clearly suffering from some psychological stress and started following her around and accusing her of all manner of strange things even turned up on my doorstep and accused me as well. This escalated to the point that he pulled a knife on them all in July and was arrested. At this point we all were relieved thinking he and they would get the help they needed. This has not been the case. He has managed to get out of the court case and is contesting the injunction to keep him away from the family and is trying to claim the house from her and the children.

    The main problem is this seems to cause the effect of Kxx not being able to claim any benefits including housing, job seekers or income support and to cap it all he has now given up work so the child tax credit has gone down and has managed to convince HMRC that he should get the child benefit which has now been taken from K and children.
    The social worker is trying to get this sorted but despite her efforts there seems like there will be now resolution before Christmas . They are trying to live on approx. 200 per month and have literally run out of food. Social worker went to food bank and i have topped up with some fresh food.

    Its one of the children birthday next week and they literally have nothing.
    We were hoping to raise enough money to get them some food for November/December and a few small present for the children whilst the social worker sorts this out.

    I would be really grateful so any small amount you can afford to make their life better.

      Thank you to everyone who found a little something to help this family. K has managed to win the court case to stop her husband coming back so we are hoping that after the New Year some of the benefits will sort themselves out. I cant thank you enough. I am sending the money to her and she will be so surprised to be able to get some presents and some nice food.

      Just an update . We are having one final push before end of November to get our total up to £100 to give to K to get some shopping. She is off to court on Monday , her husband is contesting the anti molestation order and trying to get her and the children thrown out of the house. We hope commonsense prevails but are prepared for worse. Would love to be able to make the day better by giving her the money to get some Christmas stuff . Thanks again
