My problem is simple but affects thousands. After a divorce I am struggling to start a new. I have three children who are my world but struggle from month to month. Its a new start for all of us. I just want to get my life back and not worry about losing my house, a place they can come to stay that is safe and welcoming. There are many like me who cant meet their payments without struggling, in my circumstance it was a reduction in earnings and a divorce. I have worked all my adult life and never asked for help before but this is where I find myself now. I want to be able to sleep knowing I wont be juggling pennies to make it to the end of each month. There are a million better causes out there and mine is pretty insignificant to others but if I can make this work I will continue to raise money to help other genuine people who are struggling as I am. I recently stood outside the bank discussing my financial worries on the phone. a very old frail lady held my arm and put two pound in my hand. She said we have all been there and we all can help each other. I didn't take the money but realised that there are still some very understanding people in the world.
