“The Family Fund has been a lifeline to my family this month when they awarded an Argos gift card to help pay for a new cooker, after the old one had been broken for nearly two years. This is my first application and it was dealt with fairly quickly. The nice lady who came out to interview myself and meet my son, was very pleasant and easy to talk to about our needs. I just wanted to say thank you to the workers at the Family Fund.”
