****I have replaced the phone****  due to a very generous gift from someone close to me I don’t need to raise as much so please do not donate anymore. I’m amazed at the kindness.  Lesson learned ‍♀️ Thank you all xxx

35430294_1545212104662138_r.jpegI am trying to raise some money to replace a Christmas present for my daughter after being scammed on Shpock.  Mia and Sienna are young carers, helping me look after my dad who has dementia. We have looked after dad for 9 years now. We are his carers. I myself suffer from health problems  and at times the girls find themselves looking after both me and dad. They have given up so much and continue to sacrifice their childhood helping out. For Christmas, like most kids, they asked for phones.  They saved their birthday money and gave it to me to put towards their phones. I added their birthday and Christmas money together along with £100 gift money from another family member, and had enough to get their dream phone, ok they were second hand but Christmas this year was going to be the best.  I found 2 phones, on Shpock for the girls. But one of the sellers received payment then deleted his account, Mr D B Marston from Birmingham. leaving us £510 down and my daughter is heartbroken. She is insisting it’s fine and she will go without but I am crying inside for her.  Life has been hard for the girls and With one week before Christmas, I cannot save up in time. They are lovely polite and kind girls and didn’t deserve this. Any small donations would be so greatly appreciated. I don’t expect a penny, a lot of people are a lot worse off and it’s embarrassing to admit it’s my fault. I know I’m not entitled to anything for nothing. I have all the messages saved and can upload or send to anyone who donates. Every penny (if any) will go to my daughter. And any surplus will go to Maymorn  day centre.  Thank you for taking the time to read xx
