Below are extracts from thank you letters, from some of the people we have supported. It’s both humbling and rewarding to receive these letters, emails and notes. However, the gratitude extends way beyond our Oxford office and our regional staff; it goes to every single donor and supporter, whose efforts help bring about such positive changes in the lives of others.
“The drought of 2018 and going down for the first time with TB had a big impact on us, not only emotionally but financially, especially being tenant farmers. Your help has been most appreciated, especially by my husband who has taken the events of the last 12 months quite badly. I feel that now he has accepted and come to terms with things and we can move forward.”
“I want to thank you for arranging for me to have a reclining chair. I am so pleased with it and cannot believe that it is really mine.”
“My dad just received his quarterly grant and his winter grant, he has been advised that this has been increased – this is just amazing for him. We just wanted to say a massive thank you to all of you at R.A.B.I. You wouldn’t believe what a change to his life this grant has made, he doesn’t have to worry about money anymore.”
“I just wanted to send you a quick note to express how thankful I am for the generous grant you have given to me whilst I care for my brother. The current situation is very stressful and this has eased the pressure for me. In times that are so difficult it is lovely to know there are people you can turn to.”
“The path ahead seems clearer and much more positive. Nothing will ever be able to express the sense of light and strength R.A.B.I has given to me. Life goes on and R.A.B.I has been the lighthouse while the storm raged.”
“My husband is now disabled due to an accident at work and we have fallen behind on our mortgage payments. Your cheque has allowed us as a family to have a roof over our heads and some breathing space to try and plan our financial future without a second wage.”
“The arrival of the letter informing us that we had been given a grant brought a tear to our eyes and
the first smiles for what seems like a lifetime. We never imagined that we would be in a position such as this. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being there when we truly needed some support. We are forever grateful.”
“I am writing to send my sincere thanks for the delivery of heating oil. I am currently going through the most difficult period in my life following the death of my husband, and then my daughter. It is so heart-warming to know there are people who are there to help in such difficult times.”
