Weʼre raising £300 to Make Xmas extra special and enjoy a lovely Xmas treat for one lovely lady, the most caring Mum and Grandmother.
- Children and youth
- Time left
- 17 days to go
Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
My Mum was born the week my Gran received a letter to say her father had been killed in the war, his name was Peter Brown Love, it was called the 'Behar Massacre', Gran had a graphic description of his death and how he was beheaded, then also a newborn baby to look after. Nevertheless Gran did her best and brought my Mum up with only her own mother to help.
Mum has one daughter, 'that's me' and she brought her up as a single parent. During this time Mum nursed Great Gran and then her own Mother through Cancer. Now even in retirement my Mum has worked hard by tutoring her Grandson in English after years of his ill health to help him return to Education.
Mum has had her own share of ill health as she was knocked down by a car as a young girl, having part of her thyroid gland removed and many other operations in her life. After all of these difficulties my Mum has helped her Grandson, who she loves with all her heart, to return to education and improve his confidence. Mum had previously returned to study at University as a mature student after working for 17 years.
There has been only one child in each family now for three generations and this will be a small event, though hopefully a very happy Xmas. What we need desperately this Xmas is funding to to go somewhere nice. Not looking for anything grand but trying to fund a nice meal and a trip to the theatre if possible for a wonderful Mum and a very brave and loving Grandson. As for me 'the Mum', well I've just been there throughout, caring for my son and even counselling him through the most difficult years of his life.

Thank you very much for reading.
Have a lovely Xmas and God Bless.

Please help us give my Mum and my son a lovely Xmas they will never forget as they deserves the very best. Mum worked as a Lecturer in helping young people with 'Additional Learning Needs' and also helped her Grandson back to Education after years of ill health.
