From grandparent to guardian

A month ago, we received a request for furniture, for a woman in her late 60s, who through unfortunate circumstances, had just become the main carer for her two teenage grandchildren. She had no savings, no family support or healthy pension pot and she was living in a 1 bedroom council flat. The council moved her to a 3 bedroom property but she had no additional furniture. Owing to the support of our wonderful community, NewStarts was able to deliver, free of any charge: 2 sofas, 2 single beds with mattresses, 1 double bed with mattress (and full bedding for each bed), 2 wardrobes, 2 chests of drawers, cutlery and crockery, thus helping this woman avoid taking on loans she might not have been able to pay back in order to furnish her property. Thanks again for your support: it restores people’s faith in humanity.
