CASE STUDIES - FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
Thank you again for the generous help given in replacing my front door... I am so pleased and it has made me feel more secure.
Thank you to the BSB for getting me on my feet again! The BSB lent this Old Blue, who has mobility difficulties due to arthritis, an interest free loan which enabled the commissioning and purchase of expensive bespoke walking aids sooner than she could have afforded.
I became disabled in 2004 and as an Old Blue I approached the BSB for some financial help. They were so supportive and helped me to maintain my independence by purchasing an electric scooter for me and adapting the garden to suit my needs. Over the years I have had help with furniture for my newly adapted home and more recently with a ramp for my car. I certainly did not expect the hampers that mysteriously arrive each Christmas and also the generous cheque that I received for my birthday. I am so grateful for all the help that they have given me as it has made such a huge difference. Thank you everyone at the BSB and at Christ’s Hospital.
I would like to say to all at the BSB, and at Christ’s Hospital, that the loan helped me through an exceedingly difficult time. I was separating from a violent partner and the money I received enabled me to find somewhere safe to be much sooner than would otherwise have been possible. I can never fully express my gratitude for this support.
