There is a very real reason why Philip would like us to have this donation. Phillip is passionate about our charity and wishes when he had had a need for our services that he had been offered it. He understands what a massive difference we can make to a families in need.
“Many years ago my first wife was dying of cancer; I nursed her for three years at home with our 3 little children to bring up and very little money. I suffered terribly afterwards as I had no help for myself. There were always plenty of nurses and doctors around but I was left to cope on my own. I suffered with very severe depression and ended up in the mental health unit as day patent whilst our children were at school. I don’t want anyone else to go through these things on their own as I had to... We made it through the dark days and we are all still together as a strong family. I have since met and married again. Everyone gets along really well. The children have all grown up happy and healthy with good jobs ect.. I’m ok, but will never forget the hell I went through to keep my family together. “Phillip Witcomb
