I am very grateful for your help last year, this money enabled me to go away with my daughter and give her the break she deserves. We were able to spend the money on doing things as a family and enjoy watching her smile and have a great time which I haven’t seen in a long while. I would like to send my warmest gratitude as you have helped me in more ways than you know. Thank you.Mandy

I'm writing to you as I want to thank you for your kind and generous financial award which you gave me to attend Sea Cadets. Words alone can't express the happiness this opportunity has given me, I love sea cadets because I've been able to make new friends who enjoy the same things I do and it given me exciting opportunity which school and other organisations would not of been able to give me.Young Carer
Just a note to say a huge thank you for my daughter’s IPad and speech app…Life with autism is tough if can’t communicate. This new IPad will come with her everywhere she goes so she can express her needs and make suggestions. A complete godsend! Thank you so much!Claire
