Susan is 63 and lives on her own in a bungalow in Wales following the death of her husband a few years ago. She had a stroke some 4 years ago, and this together with other health problems has left her feeling quite isolated, as she is virtually unable to walk.
Our funding helped provide access to her outbuildings in the garden, where she can now do her craft making and sewing. This means a lot to Susan, who says:
“I really felt as though I could do nothing and felt worthless. Now I’m back to my crafting I feel valued. I make many items, from candles in cups to soft toys and card making. I repair soft toys for charity shops and alter clothes for elderly neighbours. Your grant has made a massive change to my life”.
