The John Family
We have supported Chris, Marina and their children Tanya, Natasha and Rhys during a difficult few years following Chris’ redundancy.
Chris: “When things started to get hard for us financially, my wife wanted to seek help, but I was stubborn. Then, things became even harder and that’s when I picked up the phone.
“As well as helping us to pay our bills, the MCF covered the cost of gymnastics, dancing and swimming lessons for the children. All three are doing really well because of the classes – especially our son, Rhys. When he first joined gymnastics, the coach told us he had potential but his fear and lack of confidence were holding him back.”
“Now, aged 8, he helps other children in the preschool class and just won silver in his first competition.”
Marina: “To any families out there, I would say, one minute you might have everything and then the next minute it could all change. If you are struggling, please pick up the phone.”
