DEPHER & LIFE, Community Together Amid Coronavirus

As the United Kingdom, and the world, fights the coronavirus outbreak, we must come together to help the most vulnerable members of our society. Here at DEPHER  (Disabled and Elderly Plumbing and Heating Emergency Response) and LIFE  (Low Income Family Enterprise) we are determined to play our part.  Since 2017, we have provided emergency heating and plumbing services to over 6,000 elderly and disabled members and families of the communities, free of charge. At the start of this year, we extended these services to include low income and single parent families by giving them Free Gas and Electric top-ups plus food parcels. We saw that a lot of families were struggling, we could not sit by and ignore the problem so we established LIFE  it has now helped over 57 families so far. In light of recent events, we have, once again, expanded the services we provide in order to help the community at this difficult time. We are now preparing and delivering food parcels, offering gas and electricity top-ups for everyone that may need the extra help. Supporting NHS staff by delivering tokens of appreciation, food parcels and providing breakdown repairs free of charge.  The elderly, vulnerable, and those on low incomes need our help more than ever, as the coronavirus threatens their health and financial security.  We are a community of humanity and this is the time to put boundaries to one side and walk hand in hand through until the finish. Now it is about " NEED NOT GREED ". Depher cic was established in 2017 and has now assisted over 6,000 families from all over the UK with FREE plumbing and heating emergency repairs and installations for families who are over 65 and vulnerable. I initially set up this crowdfunding campaign in November 2019, to raise £30,000 to help combat the coldest winter in a decade. I have now raised the target to £50,000 in order to get to those in need throughout the pandemic.  The extra donations will enable us to deliver food parcels  and gas/electric top ups to the elderly, vulnerable and low-income families who are in most cases single parents. We are also now and after the pandemic has been beaten giving all NHS front line staff #FREE labour on all plumbing and heating emergency repairs. I know that many of you were kind enough to donate to the initial fundraiser and I cannot thank you enough. If you are able to help again, then please do. I know it is a very difficult time, so any money that you can spare is appreciated.  We are determined to work around the clock, free of charge in most cases, to alleviate the strain currently faced by our family, friends and neighbours. We will continue to do so until the pandemic is over and beyond However, as a not for profit, we need your help in order to carry out our work.  If you would like more information, then please: Call: 01282 700102 Email: [email redacted] Visit: www.depher.co.uk or www.lowincomefamily.co.uk.    Better times are coming, and they will come quicker if we help one another.
