Supporting Locally, Thinking globally

Humble beginnings.

In the space of five years, we had two babies born, too many runaways to mention and a cousin that was fleeing gang violence from Scotland live with us. To say we had an open door policy was an understatement, and if my mother, Linda, could help anyone in need, nothing was going to stop her. If that meant her walking around with carrier bags over her socks to stop the rain getting in her broken shoes as she worked one of her three jobs cleaning windows in Deeping, just to put food on the table for the extra mouths to feed, then so be it she did it. She went above and beyond for anyone she could help, and she’s done it for as long as I can remember. My mum was and still is a superhero. This, of course, made a lasting impression on me and I’ve never felt fully fulfilled unless I’m following her footsteps. I guess this is just us making it official. Families and people are at the heart of every community, and sometimes we all need a helping hand, we’ve certainly been one of those families in the past. I believe it’s our duty to give back whenever we are in a position to do so. We’re working for a world where communities will help and support the people and families in need around them. That’s what my family has always done, and wouldn’t that be something worth working towards, something that will touch and help others in need, something to be proud of. That’s why we’re here.
