I am so grateful – not only does the money help in a very practical way, but I am deeply touched to know that the charity has been there for me. It is certainly a comfort in challenging times.
Times have been difficult for our family recently, as you are well aware, but the personal understanding, generosity of the ABF and friendship have been a wonderful lifeline.
You have treated me with such care and warmth and generosity that I am profoundly moved by it. I am improving daily and soon I hope to be back at work. I will never forget your kindness.
