Who we've helped
“My husband sadly passed away and I found myself without the funds to pay for his funeral. There For You came to my rescue when I had nobody else to turn to.” – Jane, Dorset
“My daughter is going to have an operation, which means she won’t be able to walk for a year. We don’t have any spare money but I wondered if There For You could help us get away – it’s really the last chance before the operation. In two hours it was all sorted! We spent a week in Croyde Bay. I can’t remember the last time we got away. It meant so much.” – Mark, London
“‘There For You helped me deal with a tragedy. The urgent and generous support gave me the breathing space I needed and went a long way to helping me stand on my feet again.” – Tracey, East Midlands
“My daughter started secondary school today and although she was nervous she had the added confidence boost of a smart new uniform – without a hand me down in sight! As a mother who was bullied throughout secondary for having second hand uniform, I cannot thank you enough for your help.” – Lisa, Yorkshire
