A retired plumber who had been in the trade for over 20 years was recently referred to us by a local cancer charity. He had been diagnosed with a brain tumour with limited life expectancy.
Macmillan had provided a grant of £350 to help with travel costs to and from hospital. He had moved into a new property which had no carpets or flooring, but was unable to afford them for himself.
Thanks to your support, we were able to provide funding and arrange for new carpets and vinyl to be fitted. We also provided a television and stand for him which is helping to make his life more bearable and comfortable whilst completing palliative treatment.
