Blown away

21st November 2016

John is blown away by your kindness. He says:
"I am extremely grateful. It is really nice to know that there are people who aren't related to you or obligated to you who are willing to help. This will go a long way to help me."

Washing Machine

20th November 2016

B is so grateful for the washing machine she gave me a big hug and said to give it to you. She said "I cannot get over that people I don't even know want to help me"

You have made this lady's life so much easier and it has brought her great joy. Thank you.

17th November 2016

Rob said 'I think this is spot on and i appreciate it. It's been one of the things that has put a smile on my face. When I'm cooking my christmas dinner I shall think of all the people who helped it happen."

Replacement oven

14th November 2016

Oh my, a replacement oven will mean I can prepare meals again for my son (and his friends). My mum has been great but now I can provide for my family again. Thank you.

Help with Food

10th November 2016

One of our Church volunteers found out that a young man in the Church was struggling to buy food even though he has two jobs and lives alone. He asked our Acts 435 advocate Dave Key at Open Door Church Peterborough if he could help in anyway. Dave was able to find out more details and then put in a request for £60 to help with this urgent situation. £60 was given to the Church Volunteer who took the young man food shopping straight away. They returned to his home and filled his cupboards and fridge with food which was more than enough to help him until his next pay day. The request was posted and met in full within two weeks by generous donations. Thank you for helping us to support him in his time of need.

Childrens' scout camp

7th November 2016

A family of 4 were enabled to attend an international scout jamboree at Charnwood. They greatly enjoyed themselves, and sent cards thanking the sponsors. They saw the pop group Little Mix, made balloons and completed challenges along with lots of other children from around the country. "It was excellent, thank you very much, Best day ever".

Mum

7th November 2016

Thomas was able to visit his mum who lives quite a way from Bournemouth. She is in very ill health and to be able to see her has been fantastic. Thank you so much.

Timely

6th November 2016

Electric Cooker

This young mum is so grateful for your help in enabling her to buy a cooker. She has just moved into a new home after her previous house and all their belongings were destroyed by fire.
This is a new start and to know that people care enough to help her gives her the courage to go on. Thank you.

Residential

3rd November 2016

Abbas thoroughly enjoyed his time away on the residential to Peat Rigg, he was allowed to be a young child without the worries of waiting to hear if their leave of stay had been granted. Abbas enjoyed abseiling, zip lines, Jacob's Ladder and numerous other activities. He was chilled and relaxed the entire time he was their and thoroughly enjoyed himself.

Bike

Thank you.

Lovely gratitude

18th October 2016

When I told Jackie about this donation this was her response...

Oh how wonderful, I truly can't believe the kindness of people, to a person they don't even know. Thank you so much for doing this for me. You don't know what it means to me. I'm totally overwhelmed. I will sleep better tonight, I know that.That money will certainly help me more than you can imagine. I want them to know how grateful I am so do tell them please for me - I don't know what the correct thing to do is.
Love, light and many rainbows Jackie

Cooker

18th October 2016

I just am so relieved that I haven't got to save for ages for a new cooker. I can actually go and get the second hand shop to sort me out and come and fit it all in - just a few more pounds for me to save which I can do in a few weeks now - much more do-able. Thank you so much people.

Relieved!

16th October 2016

With the aftermath of accident at work and termination of wages, it is a desperate hardship to visit my daughter and grandchild who are still at mother & child shelter all the way past Gatwick. Now I can visit and purchase food items to complement Foodbank and buy nappies and formula for my grandchild.

Thank you very much, God bless you.

Saved from Eviction

15th October 2016

Thank You is an understatement! To think that a residency of 35 years would be lost, due to rent arrears of £500 is embarrassing, and could have happened if ACTS 435 had not given, thereby delaying the eviction process, consequently making room for other inputs to secure the tenancy.

THANK YOU.

School shoes

12th October 2016

Sam has really benefited from the gift for school shoes. She was so pleased to be able to buy a pair for each of her children! She was delighted to purchase new socks and underwear for her growing teenage boys! There was even money for a top for herself as she spent her money wisely in a sale. Her befriender Angie took Sam for coffee after the shopping trip and they were able to talk about the difficulties in her life. Angie was able to support and encourage her. This opportunity was created because of the generous gifts from Acts 435!

New Carpets

10th October 2016

My carpets were worn and needed replacing and I could not afford to do it, my son suffers with OCD & Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome, he has a fear of contamination which causes him to find safe zones around the home so he can feel comfortable and clean. The money received has helped me to prepare and carpet a room for him where he can feel comfortable.

They needed a cooker and found Jesus

7th October 2016

The couple came to us at Christmas time last year in need of a cooker. Because of the generosity of one of the Acts 435 supporters we were able to do this. We were also able to lead the couple to Jesus and they remain a very precious part of our Saturday Gathering family having now been baptised and confirmed.
