    Story

    In common with thousands of others, Viscountess Boudica of Bethnal Green has had her Incapacity Benefit suspended pending reassessment.

    Unfortunately, the powers-that-be have lost her papers and she is now facing a court case on July 7th for non-payment of £788 Council Tax and eviction for rent arrears of £1007.

    Please help raise this money so our beloved Viscountess can save her home and get her benefits sorted out, and resume her equilibrium.

      Update from the Page owner

      The rent of Viscountess Boudica's council flat in Bethnal was increased to a 'market value' of £700 a week and, meanwhile, she was offered a flat in Uttoxeter at £68 a week. Understandably, she has chosen to start a new life in Staffordshire. Without your help, the Viscountess' struggles would have been so much worse and she asks me to thank you all for your kindness and generosity in her time of need. I am sure you will join me in sending our best wishes to the Viscountess for happiness in the future. You can reach her at boudicaredd@gmail.com

      When Viscountess Boudica appeared in Court on 7th July, she was given a month to pay off her debts and resolve the benefits situation. This is a positive development and means that - with your help - we have a better chance of putting things right.
