Brave orphan brothers

34642728_1542547273967849_r.jpegMy lovely sister (pictured above) passed away from ovarian cancer just 6 years when her beloved boys were only 9yrs and 12yrs old.

Very sadly lightening has struck twice and the boy's father died on 12th November 2018.  He was diagnosed with terminal cancer over a year ago and the family have been struggling for a while. The boys are just 15yrs and 19yrs and need immediate help as there was no financial provision for them. They are left in the home they were born in that requires urgent repairs and has a mortgage on it which needs to be paid in the short term.

The eldest has had difficulties with education ever since he lost his mum, being diagnosed with autism and is now trapped in his room. The youngest has done well with high grades predicted for his GCSE's but has very much been a young carer. Wise beyond his years he is understandably worried about his future and feels responsible for his brother whom he also speaks for.

I am fundraising to help them have a future. In the short-term we are focussing on keeping a roof over their heads, bills paid, a warm coat on their backs, a mobile phone & the internet, repairs to their home, money for Christmas, educational activites and maybe some fun.

If you can help in anyway I would be very grateful.
