The importance of being together

Dealing with a huge life changing event is traumatic and challenging for anyone. So, when we were made aware that one of our member’s was trying to cope with a particularly distressing family situation, we were keen to offer our support.

Early this year the Benevolent Fund gave retired officers, Peter (known to friends as Buck) and his wife Amanda, a grant to pay for a wet room to be fitted in their family home.

53-year-old Amanda requires 24-hour care and as a result has spent many months in hospital.

Essential modifications made to their house, including the new wet room, means Amanda can now remain with her husband and two children at the family home.

Being able to stay together as a family, especially at Christmas, has massively improved the family’s quality of life.

“I would like to say thank you on behalf of Amanda and myself for funding our wet room. As you know I had not considered the Benevolent Fund for help, but after a third party approached you for possible assistance, I was grateful for your support.

“From day one you have been so positive whilst not making any promises. We are so very grateful for the funding provided. The wet room has made a tremendous difference to Amanda being home , which is all thanks to the generosity of the Benevolent Fund.

Thank you.”

We have helped lots of members and their families again this year. If you are going through a challenging time or know someone who may need help, please get in touch. If they’re a member of the West Midlands Police Benevolent Fund  we may be able to offer our assistance.
