WHAT A STARTER PACK CAN MEAN FOR A RECIPIENT

Recipient of the packs have said:

“Many years of building up a beautiful home; then suddenly having to leave it all behind. It’s so hard to start again. When I unpacked my stuff, I just stood in my kitchen and wept - someone cared. So, thank you for co-ordinating this wonderful scheme.”
"The items I received were perfect. I can't think that there was anything not thought of. Thank you so much!"
