Difficult circumstances brought my family to this incredible charity and my daughter benefitted greatly from the skills, dedication, and compassion which we encountered within.
To quote John Lennon, “life is what happens while you are making other plans” and it is so true. None of us envisage or plan to encounter serious illness, disability, or loss of vision. When we do, we hope that out there, somewhere, will be the charitable organisations with the plan and the knowledge to lighten our load and help us through.
I can’t begin to imagine our lives and experiences, had there been no Henshaws, and yet without donations, many charities would cease to exist, and the reality for families like mine would be much harder, and much more isolating.
It occurred to me that one of the most profound ways I could ensure Henshaws is there to support future generations and families when the unexpected happens, was to leave a gift in my will. My appreciation for and gratitude towards this organisation will now outlive me, and that means so much. The help, guidance, and kindness which our family received will be available to others, and that matters a great deal.
