We want to provide a comfortable, functional home for our relative with 24 hour care.
She was suddenly widowed on the 7th May 2016.
She and her husband sacrificed a great deal to raise my brother and I when our parents divorced and went their separate ways.
Our childhood would have been terrible if not for them and their kindness and loving ways. They are kind to everyone, always giving 'little treats' to absolutely every person who they know and who visits.
He worked for the Post Office for 40 years and then worked for 20 years for a local small business, working the day before he passed away at age 80.
She would never ask anyone for anything, they liked to be self sufficient.
Our aim is to purchase and fit out a home with annexe where she can be comfortable, and we can provide 24 hour care as she is housebound and has very limited mobility.
Any donations will be gratefully received and used for her benefit. She would not like to think that we asked anyone for help, and I am not entirely comfortable with asking others for help either, but I have a great debt to pay to her for all the wonderful ways in which she made my life so happy.
I know that there are a great many worthwhile causes asking for help, and if you decide to contribute to mine, then I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart, and assure you that everthing will be used to benefit my Auntie and make her last little time here, the best it can be.
Thank you, and God bless each of you.

About the fundraiser
I was fortunate to be raised by my Auntie and Uncle after my parents divorced. They were the most kind, generous people and I feel a huge debt of gratitude to them, but especially now that my Auntie is widowed. It is hard to ask others for help, but we realize that help is needed
