Story

I am setting up this page to try to help a mum who is in poor health, her son who is partially blind and their beautiful dog TJ who are currently homeless and sleeping in a tent in Merstham.

I met them during the summer when I read their story in the paper and took some food etc to them couple of times.

I thought they had been rehomed only to discover that they had actually been moved on as they were camping on SCC land. Having been forced to pack up their belongings and pitch their tent elsewhere, they have now been served notice again to move on before 31st December 2018.

The tent is damaged, the weather is wet and incredibly cold and only going to get worse through the winter and is seems thy cannot get housed unless they are either separated or rehome the dog (whom they have had since a pup and he is now 10) who they absolutely adore and who adores them equally.

It seems that their only option is to find a private rental which with no job, with a pet and the fact that they were evicted from a previous property is going to be incredibly hard if not impossible.

They have been lovely to us every time we have seen them and they have been so grateful for any help that we have given them.

Please could I ask for your help so that we can try to find them accommodation if only through the winter months. Any amount, however small would be hugely appreciated. No-one should be in this situation.

Thank you so much xxxx

    I just want to thank everyone again for helping to get Lynda, Stuart and Tj through the winter. They had a few stays in a travelodge etc and have managed to get an old van to stay in for now but they’re still paying for it & the tax on it is pretty expensive too. It’s not a long term solution as Lynda has severe arthritis & struggles to walk so sleeping in a van every night is far from ideal but they’re very grateful for all your support and the fact that the money raised has at least enabled them to get off the streets for now so thank you x

    Lynda & Stuart told me last night that they have now been offered 2 nights accommodation, which has been paid for from the money raised, but are then back at the tent. Please please keep sharing/helping. It’s so very very cold and we haven’t yet raised enough to even get them a second hand caravan. Very worried about them. Thanks again so much for all your help and support x

    Thank you for helping this family. I see them regularly in Redhill and I fervently hope that some accommodation can be found. No one should be sleeping rough in this country.
