What our fundraisers say…

You can make sure no one has to recover alone

“Because of you I am not alone”

Michelle and her mum both had strokes within days of each other. Michelle survived, but tragically her mum didn’t.

“I sat in the hospital bed struggling to move or speak, trapped in the pain and absolute grief of losing my mum.”

When she came home from hospital, Michelle felt completely alone.

But thanks to amazing donations from fundraising superheroes like you, Michelle got the practical and emotional support she really needed from our support worker Claire.

“Claire is one of the most important people in my life right now. Like my mum, Claire is someone I will never forget. She makes my life worth living and her kindness saved me.

“Your donations fund Claire’s work. Because of you, I am not alone.”
