This week’s nomination

Morning to our lovely community, Helping people when they need help the most is what we do, and thats what this weeks nomination is about. Losing a loved one is the hardest thing to go through and for money to be a worry at this point its just exhausting. We are helping someone give the funeral her mother deserves, to help in such a sad time.We are sending so much love and support.
Here is the nomination in full.
Hi, I would like to nominate a friend from work Natalie Davies, who has recently lost her Mum, she hasn't got enough money for the funeral costs and said she is really worried about not being able to pay for a proper funeral. Obviously colleagues have set up a funding page to help but the company is made up of actors and creatives who don't have a lot of disposable income. I think a boost of £500 would really help to ease her mind during this incredibly difficult period. Having recently gone through a bereavement for someone who had a funeral plan in place, I can't even begin to imagine how difficult it must be to be worried about money and covering the cost of a funeral whilst grieving. Thanks for reading and thanks for all the amazing work you do running this group. Amy Spencer 

From Natalie:  If you could let them know from me: Thank you from the bottom of my heart this means the world and helps toward the goodbye my mother deserves. She would be crying tears of joy to know my brother and I have support in this difficult time. Thank you for everything it is so much more than anticipated and I only wish I had the words to express what your generosity means to me.
