Hi, My name is David I’m 70 years old. My wife Karen is 60 years old and still the love of my life We are about to lose our home. We have lived here for 19 years and love the place. We have 7 Years left on the mortgage but our world has now collapsed around us.
I have worked all my adult life. Served my country in the armed services and never been without a job. When I was 50 I was involved in an accident that damaged my back. I had surgery but still found it hard to continue the work I was used to doing. I tried an office job but had trouble keeping up with what was expected of me as I had been a builder’s laborer and HGV driver since leaving the forces. I was taken on as a part time shelf stacker that paid very little but continued until I retired at 65. At that time, it was OK because my wife had a good job. Her wages and my pension covered everything to do with the mortgage and living expenses but with nothing left over for savings. Last year my wife was made redundant from the company she had been with for 19 years. At 59 years old nobody is willing to give you a job in the sector she worked in. Karen has had 14 interviews with no takers. We are at the point of her redundancy money running out. I have sold every thing I had of any value and other than my state pension and a small amount from the unemployment office we have no other income. We are about to default on the mortgage for the first time ever. The bank has said we will need to keep the payments up to date or after 3 months they will seek possession. We will loose the house we have paid 19 years for. We re-mortgaged 7 years ago for some renovation work that was badly needed so there is no equity in the property so selling it now would not be an option. We have nowhere to go when we lose the house so I’m asking for help. I have never ask anyone for help before and it took a lot of humble pie to get to this point. I have supported lots of charities over the years only to find now I’m a charity case. Please if anyone out there can help us out while we until we can find an answer to our problem, we will be forever grateful.
God bless you https://paypal.me/davegb333
