Sara wrote to tell us that we had made an enormous difference to the life of their family. Having a disabled baby boy had been life changing, mentally, physically and financially and she had to give up her career in retail management to care for him. She told us that GroceryAid have lifted a massive weight with emotional and financial support. The additional payment of £150 for her child has really helped improve their Christmas.
Len has been feeling lonely and depressed since his wife died three years ago. He used to work for a food wholesaler so he contacted GroceryAid. As well as the financial help he receives, Len also looks forward to a weekly telephone call from Lynne, our telephone befriender, and enjoys their chats.
Albert worked for a food manufacturer for 30 years. When he retired he found that he and his wife needed a little help to make their home warm and safe. We have been able to help with their boiler replacement and with repairing their front windows which were letting in the cold.
Amy is a single mum working in our industry. Following the breakdown of her relationship she needed help with priority debts to keep her in the family home. GroceryAid has been able to help with this as well as providing emotional support through our partnership with Relate.
