Hello Everybody, this is very difficult for me to write, but all avenues seem to have been closed to me.
I am 25 and from a rough council estate in Nottingham. I have set up this page to raise something towards me and my partners first house deposit. Hopefully people can relate to the difficulty that surrounds us in an ever changing and un-forgiving world. You can help fulfil our dream and help build the next chapter of our lives.
I hope you can take the time to read my story.
I have worked so hard since an early age, and have really tried to not only better my life but also those whose surround me. I work 3 days a week and volunteer 4 days a week. My father is disabled after a serious road accident and my mother is his unpaid carer, our household is always under immense amounts of stress and pressure to provide, it is something I really don't like to worry think about.
I earn less than £8,000 annually, I have younger siblings whom I care about immensely but you can imagine the sorts of pressure that I feel.
Its easy for people to stay stop volunteering and work full time, but who will then volunteer for the church? In those times of need who do they have to look up to?
I survive on whatever money I have left throughout the months, where I have rent and bills to contribute to, it is never ending and I'm constantly trying to survive on tiny amounts but it is just a massive struggle. I try not to think about the grave situation. I am not a charity just need a massive help in hand. Any sort of financial aid would be grateful. I am a stage where every time I take one step forward, I take two steps back.
There is beautiful house near my parents at £65,000. Any money raised towards our first home deposit would not only would help my entire family and give my parents rest-bite they deserve. It would allow me and my partner to support ourselves and allow us to continue to volunteer to the young and old people in our church community.
Thank You :)
