Success Stories

Electric Cooker

6th November 2016

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.


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.

Dipo Had just been given the money for his bike when he found out that he had been granted the Leave to Stay in the UK! His response was he could now go out and about looking for work to support his family and he felt he had the means to do so as he had his own transport!!

Gas fitter to connect cooker

21st October 2016

It will be so wonderful to be able to cook meals with more elements than I can do in just the microwave, I am really looking forward to enjoying eggs .... !!
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


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.


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.


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.

So grateful for new shoes for twins

2nd October 2016

This lady was so grateful for the help in getting shoes for her twins to start nursery as they were smart like the rest of the children at nursery. She was able to get them new shoes in time to start nursery.


26th September 2016

A recipient describes the difference that the Acts 435 donation made to her: Thank you for the donation, I have purchased a 3 seater settee and 2 chairs. I was at the end of my teather and the stress that the money awarded has removed from me is significant in the fact that it was affecting my mental health. Thank you so much.

Youth Club Reidential

22nd September 2016

'O' & his brother 'E' had a wonderful time at the residential in Peat Rigg. They were able to forget for a short period of time the stresses the family are under whilst waiting for the government to process their application for status. Both boys thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to be children and have the freedom to play and interact with their peers. They took part in absailing, orienteering, climbing 'Jacobs Ladder' team games etc.

Thank you so much on their behalf for allowing this wonderful opportunity

Clothes for Eed

22nd September 2016

'K' is a very humble very private person and she was overwhelmed by the generosity shown by Acts 435 members! At the time of the application 'K' was undergoing medical investigation for a lump on her neck and the concerns were this might have been cancer. Thankfully it was not and an operation was required to remove it safely. While this was going on 'K' and her family were celebrating Eed and this was the reason for the request. Thanks to everybody's donations she was able to buy her children new clothes and shoes and participate in this cultural event with friends.

Baby Equipment

22nd September 2016

'L' had a baby boy on the 30th August! Mum & baby are both doing well. Unfortunately due to historical events her son is currently not living at home with her but does have daily contact. 'L' has decorated his room beautifully and thank to everybody's kind donations this little man now has a room fit for a prince!!


22nd September 2016

'M' was struggling with her little girl and tantrums, since she has decorated the bedroom and bought new furniture courtesy of the generosity of Acts435 members things seem to have calmed down a lot. Her daughter loves the new room and views it as a quiet place to go and reflect. Thank you everybody for making this happen.

Mother moved by gift to want to get her 2 children baptised

22nd September 2016

This is the second time we have helped 'J' and her family (daughter 4 and son aged 1).
'J' is a single mum and has had a lot of struggles with mental health, but loves her children and always puts them first on her limited income.
Her small home suffers with damp problems and she can't move at present due to lack of available social housing accommodation locally. She had to throw out old beds due to damp infestation and she is very moved by the generosity of the gift to replace the beds.
We talked to her about baptising her children last year and she talked to a local minister, but she has difficulty with organised church. She volunteered to me this week following the gift that she feels God wants her to get her children baptised and she is starting the process of arranging this with a local Anglican Church.

Helping client to slowly move forward

22nd September 2016

Since getting to know 'L' and her family in January this year, and due to her twins and other small children and her own mental health, she does not have a lot of time and energy to deal with debts and other issues in her life. Each time we meet we are able to help with a few things at a time and really go at her speed. She is so grateful for this and being able to bless her with a washing machine has been one of the incidences that has helped her move forward and relax that everything will work out. She can then put more of her energy into looking after herself and her children.

New Mattress

15th September 2016

After the death of her partner in her bedroom a lady in Liverpool was unable to sleep in the room, and slept on the sofa downstairs. Her partner died 2 years ago. She had dealt with some of her bereavement but the process had stopped and she was struggling with depression. The new mattress replaced her old one and has enabled her to sleep upstairs. Not only that but she said she had slept well for the first time in 'ages.' Her bereavement process is still ongoing but she can move on a bit now.
