How we helped Eleanor
Eleanor is a retiree who experienced loneliness following the death of her husband. When her fridge stopped working, and she could not afford a new one, Eleanor got in touch with us to see how we could help.
Though Eleanor’s reason for contacting us was for financial assistance, in speaking with her we identified that she was spending most of her time alone, feeling disconnected from friends and family.
In addition to funding the cost of a replacement fridge, we paid for an annual membership to a local gym, which provided Eleanor with access to exercise classes and allowed for social interaction.
