    Story

    Hi I'm Paula.
    Recently I was attacked by the man I have loved for 25yrs. he has been convicted and I'm starting divorce.
    I have 4 incredible children 18, 17, 14 & 10. the youngest is my only daughter lizzie. she misses her dad and loves him very much though understands why he can't live here. she suffers from nightmares and won't talk to anyone about this as it's too painful.
    When my ex left we were already struggling with money but now I have to run the house on very little which I just manage keep the house warm and food in the cupboards.
    I am asking for help so I can re-decorate the home and make it feel safe again, to carpet downstairs as there is no carpet and it's cold, to pay for vet care as our dog needs to be put down (she has cancer) and be able to treat the kids to a burger and a cinema trip and buy the Christmas presents especially for lizzie this will probably be the last Christmas she will believe santa exists and feel awful that she going to be without her dad on Christmas morning. She is such a beautiful person and deserves to have a few presents.
    I'm heartbroken that I have end my marriage I loved him since I was 17 I'm now 43. IN the last 6 yrs he has been abusive after an affair. I k ow i should never have taken him back but i adored him. and it took all I had to end this for my own sake but mostly so my children would be safe but the home feels wrong. there are holes in doors and plaster from him breaking them. I need to make a new start but I have nothing left after I pay essential costs.
    I realise it's a lot to ask from strangers but I need to do this for my children they need a warm safe nest to recover in.
    Thank you for taking the time to read this. MUCH love to you x

      Sadly our beautiful springer spaniel Lady was unable to fight any longer. I had to let her go. She died in my arms on 7th November 2016. As you can imagine this has put even more sadness on my kids especially lizzie. Your donation would really help not just with things but by letting my kids know that there are good things that happen. Please help put a little hope back I'm struggling to find it. 😢
