A life turn round
10th August 2018
"Harry" had a difficult childhood. He was brought up by a single mum along with several other children all by different fathers. During his formative years, Harry’s various “parents” suffered from alcohol and drug abuse.
He first came into contact with us via the JOB Club which was run out of the local church. His self-esteem was low and his clothes were ragged. In July 2016, Acts 435 donors provided funds for new clothes. This was particularly helpful as he had been invited to a wedding and had been ashamed to accept the invitation until he received the new clothes.
In May 2017, Acts 435 donors provided support for him to go on a course to prepare people to work for British Rail. He passed every test first time. However, he was unable to get a job on the railway. Nevertheless, the course helped Harry to understand the meaning of work and work ethics, so he progressed from there by holding down jobs in restaurants, working unsocial hours.
However, Harry has now found a job working for a small business in the local area. He has impressed the owners by coming up with cost saving ideas and the business is prospering. Harry is almost ready to move into a private rental accommodation, and his boss has provided financial support for the up front bond. Harry has also been sent on training courses which involved overnight accommodation at good quality hotels.
In short, the two Acts 435 donations have helped Harry turn his whole life round!
