Help us secure our new home

Earlier this year my family lost our flat and were placed into temporary accomodation. The three of us have been living in a single room with shared facilities in a volatile environment which has been incredibly difficult for us. After months of fighting we have finally managed to get into the position of being offered a place to live. The council are helping us with the deposit however there are other costs which we are struggling to afford, such as:

- A removal Van and workers to help move our stuff from storage
- The final fees for our storage facility
- We had to leave a lot of our larger furniture behind as we had nowhere to keep it (We could only afford a small storage unit), so we are in need of beds and a few other basic items

During our stay in temp accomodation we have been helped out by some very generous people who I will be forever grateful for. 

This chance of a new start for our family is literally life saving for us. The stress of this last year has had a very detrimental effect on both my mental and physical health. It has also been very tough for our daughter. If we could manage to raise this money to make the move as stress free as possible it really would mean the world to us and make sure we can be settled in our new place for Christmas. That is just about the greatest Christmas present I could ever ask for.

Anything at all you can spare would help. Thankyou for taking the time to read our story and every bit of support means the world. I understand this time of year is a hard time financially so even sharing our post helps.

Thankyou.
