My name is Vicky, i am 30 years old and my daughter is called Verity. I am currently working as a manager at a mental health hospital, as well as studying part-time in Psychology Counselling. I am a very driven woman, and have always worked for everything i have which unfortunately is not a lot.
Myself and my daughter didn’t have the best start in life together. Her dad was very abusive, and we were stuck in that situation for a year before i plucked up the courage to get him arrested, and to get us out of that situation. Two years on and we are so much happier.
While we are happier, happiness can only stretch so far when you struggle with your finances. I work full-time for the NHS, and unfortunately the wages aren’t great for the work we do. When we left our old lives we weren’t classed as important enough to be given a home funded by the government, and so we went into private renting. Currently after rent and bills we are left with next to nothing to live on.
While most people enjoy material things i feel rich with a roof over my head, and that is always the most important thing for us. My overall goal is to get us out of this two bed flat, and into our own home with a mortgage.
Its very hard asking for help as i am a proud person, however, the time has come for me to suck up my pride and ask for donations towards a deposit for a house. Currently deposits are around £15,000-£20,000 which is an impossible amount for me.
I’m in no way asking for all of that, just whatever you can to help. Every penny will be greatly appreciated, and i will keep you updated on our journey.
Thank you so much.
