Home | Who We Help and How | What beneficiaries say about the help they receive

The Society receives a steady mail-bag of cards and letters from its beneficiaries, telling us how the financial help it provides makes a difference to their circumstances.  The following provide a flavour of of these messages...

“Your payment arrived at a very opportune time as I have just received a particularly large electricity bill, and I was struggling to pay it.”

“Thank you is so inadequate but I just need to let you know how grateful I am for the grant. My central heating boiler requires repairing and this will go halfway towards the cost.”

“Thanks to your grant, I was able to employ a gardener as I am no longer able to do this myself. I can now take great enjoyment from watching the snowdrops and daffodils come through.”

“I cannot thank you enough for all the help you have given me, and the kindness shown to me by your Caseworkers.”

“I would like to acknowledge with deep gratitude the payment from IGF. Since I was widowed 43 years ago, I have always struggled financially and your grant has been such a help.”

“Your payments from IGF have made my life so much easier. Once again I want to say thanks, you have made my life so much happier.”

 “Thank you so much for the grant. I have never had a holiday in 30 years so this will enable me to have a break at last.”

“My car, which is my lifeline, needed some major repairs and thanks to your grant, I’m back on the road again!”

“My dear sister in England  has been very ill, and your grant allowed me to travel to visit her which was a great comfort to us both”
