“THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING”
“Having lived in Plymouth all of my life and finding myself in a difficult situation having four small children, two of which have complex special needs, I contacted the Plymouth Ladies Charity Club for help.
Myself and my partner wanted to create a safe engaging outside space for our family. Our garden, whilst fenced was a muddy bog and not at all safe or inviting for anyone, let alone young children with special needs. The project in terms of work and cost was huge, daunting and felt impossible, but with the help of this wonderful charity we did it. My little family has a place that’s safe and enriching, that allows us to make memories and have fun, it enables my children with special needs to access the outside world and it allows my other children the chance to be children. A year on and we are still enjoying our gift from the Plymouth Ladies Charity Club. We use the garden every day and in the summer it’s essential to us. It really is“the gift that keeps on giving” and the ladies who made our dream a reality, really are real-life fairy godmothers!
As a way of showing our appreciation, we wanted to give something back to this life changing charity and the wonderful ladies who make it possible because without them we wouldn’t have our beautiful garden, my disabled children would be house-bound and my other children would have no opportunities to play outside, so this year, to show our gratitude, my partner ran the Plymouth Half Marathon to raise much needed funds and awareness for this incredible charity. We are delighted to be able to hand back to Plymouth Ladies Charity Club the sum of £270.00 which can be used to help other children who also need the help of this wonderful local Charity.
I’m a firm believer that in life things will knock you down and we all need a helping hand to get back up and keep moving forward. In difficult times the smallest act of kindness can make an unbelievable difference. Plymouth Ladies Charity Club were our helping hand and the difference these fairy godmothers have made will stay with me forever so it’s been a pleasure to be able to give something back. I hope their magic can continue to help other people.”
