This week, we’d like to help a couple called Bill and Sunny, and their grandchildren, Jack and William (aged 10 and 13).
The boys were severely neglected by their mother so she is no longer allowed to have any contact with them. Jack and William are still traumatised by what happened to them - they're hurt and angry. They've just started counselling to help them deal with everything.
Bill and Sunny agreed to take custody of their grandsons to avoid them going into the care system. They were nominated by a social worker, who said they are lovely grandparents who want to do everything they can to help the boys – but they are struggling financially and it's a lot for them take on. They’ve been worried about how they will afford the things the boys need, especially the initial extra furniture and clothing.
Bill and Sunny are very proud and have been reluctant to ask for any help, but their social worker saw the need and convinced them to allow us to help. With your support, we’d love to provide some bedroom furniture, as well as bikes and clothes, to help them set up a new home for Jack and William, without having to worry about the cost.
