Can you help 82 year old Vera Haselden?

Vera had her £54,000 life savings stolen by a carer. As a result of this crime, Vera has been forced to leave her home and go into a care home.

Vera has dementia, so it would be truly amazing if the money that was stolen from her could be returned quickly - so Vera can decide for herself where she wants to live.

Here is the quote from Harrow Crown Court recorder, Andrew Hearn, about the impact of this crime on Vera:

“The consequences for Miss Haselden have been enormous because she lived in fear of entering a care home. She now has no capital and as a consequence has gone into a care home. She told the police she feels like she is in a prison, ending up where she did not want to be.”

Please give whatever you can towards restoring Vera's life savings.

Thank you.

Dear all,

I've been speaking with Penningtons Manches LLP (Vera's Power of Attorney) and the team at Go Fund Me. Penningtons have now requested that I withdraw the funds in my name and then send them a cheque, which they will pay into Vera's bank account. On their request, the fundraising page is now closed to further donations.

Before releasing the funds raised, Go Fund Me have asked that I update you all as to how the funds will reach Vera. I want to thank you all once again for your generosity. I did also manage to speak to Vera's social worker and care home, who were thrilled with the kindness shown by the community towards Vera.

Thank you for not walking by and showing concern for a lady you do not know personally.

My best wishes

Charlotte

Hi everyone,

Vera's power of attorney, Penningtons Manches LLP are being a great help with getting these funds into Vera's account. They had to follow due processes, in order to accept this money on Vera's behalf - but they have just given me written confirmation that they can accept your kind donations, which is fantastic news!

So now, I have written to Go Fund Me about the quickest way to get these funds to Penningtons Manches LLP, which I'm awaiting their advice on.

Thank you again for donating so generously for Vera and spreading the word about this campaign.

My best wishes

Good afternoon, some great news today. The Met Police have now put me directly in touch with Vera's social worker and power of attorney, to discuss passing funds on to Vera. We have spoken on the phone this morning, to start the process of making the arrangements. I have also spoken with the care home where Vera is currently staying, to inform them too - they are being very helpful.

I really can't thank you enough for your help - everyone who has donated and shared this page for Vera. If you're happy to, please share the link to Vera's fund on your social media pages or with friends via email, to spread the word further.
