Re-build the life of 2 Derby student Nurses

Hello there,

This is a story about how two amazing, young ladies who are currently suffering from massive losses in their lives. In the space of 3 days both girls have suffered a significant life changing event due to them both having house fires.

Student 1 Solie - On Sunday 19th April has damages to her family home where she lives with her little one. Not only is Solie a mother, she is also a full time nursing student and has been for 2 years. Solie also works as a shop assistant to provide for her and son.

Student 2 Becky - On Tuesday 21st April the block of flats where Becky and her partner live caught on fire. Becky has move from London to Derby to complete a nursing degree 2 years ago. Becky also work as a shop assistant and is currently working hard to provide deliveries to those in need.

Both girls have spent the last 2 years at the University of Derby on a Nursing degree which they have put their hearts and souls into their studies. These girls work so hard they both have their current jobs, they are both are studying full time and also when they are out on placement they are both working 12.5 hour shifts within NHS hospitals in Derby and Nottingham. Both girls always have a smile on their faces and they are always willing to help anyone and everyone with anything.

The life of a student nurse is hard enough on its own, without having to also be dealing with what these two are currently facing.

Both girls have lost everything, memories, personal items, property, furniture, clothing, and children toys. Not only have they lost all of the above they have also lost the last 2 years of their studies, they have lost their books, their notes and their laptops being due to the fires.

We have taken it upon ourselves as peers and friends of Soile and Becky to create this go fund me page, in the hope that these 2 students can start to re-build their lives the best way they can.

With the help from, family, friends, peers, tutors, the university and also member of the public. Please lets stand together and pull together in this hard times for these students and their families the best that we can. 

To those students that are in the Nursing September 2019 cohort will know who these student are and you with know how nice, kind and caring they both are and understand how upsetting and life changing this is for them. We as a cohort should support each other and guide each other so I am asking for you all to please make a contribution to these ladies.

If you can give anything to contribute to the re-building the lives of these students life it would be much appreciated.

Thank you so much for your time reading this and thank you if you are able to donate anything.

The University of Derby Student Nurses September 2019 cohort.
