“Dear St Vincent’s”

“When my husband lost his job, I assumed he would get another one, but he couldn’t find work. He sank into depression and we were in danger of losing our home.
When the washing machine broke, I had to borrow £200 to buy a new one. Suddenly I owed £300 and the amount kept going up until the debt was in the thousands. I felt trapped, scared and very lonely. A friend told me about St Vincent’s.
You didn’t judge me. You listened to me and allowed me to talk, shout and cry. You have helped me get my debts under control which I would never have been able to do alone. I cannot tell you how grateful I am that you were there for me when I really didn’t know where to turn.”
