Their help has even gone beyond my family, impacting the lives of my friends, my extended family and particularly my parents and brother, who were keen to support us but simply did not have the means to do so.
ABS has helped my young daughter too, as she had become increasingly aware of our financial struggles – now she says she feels like we have an angel or a fairy godmother watching over us! Because of ABS’ additional Christmas gift, I was able to plan and budget to give my daughter the Christmas gift of a trip to London where she visited museums and saw the sights; it was what I consider to be a valuable cultural experience and one which I would not ordinarily be in a position to give her.
I am profoundly grateful for the help and support provided by Architect’s Benevolent Society. I hope one day to be able to give back and help others in our profession who need support, just like I did.
