This week, we’d like to help Agnes, an 81 year old lady from Scotland. Her daughter sadly died of cancer three years ago, leaving behind 6 young children. Two of the children were going to end up in the care system, so Agnes took them in and they now live with her full time.
Agnes is not well and is in daily pain, but she does everything she can for the boys, who are now aged 10 and 12. A support worker for the family said: “Every time I ask how she is, she just tells me: ‘I’m fine’ dear – she never complains and is a truly inspirational woman."
But Agnes is now in isolation with her grandchildren, so life has become much harder. They live in a council house with a tiny garden that is in need of a lot of work, and there is very little for the boys to do – indoors or out.
We would love to help make this time easier for them.
