Giveaway #67 Foster parents facing financial crisis

Our 67th Donation!

Nominated by our member Laraine:

I would like to nominate some friends of my sons.

They have 4 children of their own, the eldest aged 18 years has special needs, then younger siblings 15 years, 10 years and 9 years.

They have adopted a 2 year old little girl, who was born in the UK but whose parents were from the Czech Republic.

They also foster 2 children as and when required and have fostered over 25 babies altogether.

They are going through a bit of a rough patch financially and where their monthly energy direct debit is usually around £400, they have just had £900 taken from their account with no warning.

Friends when I spoke to Mum on the phone it was clear she was a very special and kind lady, they’ve loved fostering and when they wanted to adopt they had to pay to do it privately because they weren’t an ‘ethnic match’ to the little girl. This was very expensive and then quickly followed by an unexpected hike in their fuel bill. Our donation of £500 has provided huge relief and Mum was ‘amazed and thankful’.

Well done everyone, another very deserving family being helped through financial crisis.
