‘We don't exist to just to provide a service, we exist to make a real difference to people because we care. Local people helping local people.’ says Amanda Heath, Founder of Melton and District Money Advice Centre.
‘Thanks to the Melton Lottery for our funding, we are able to keep making the difference here in our community. We are continuing to support people locally with their debts and money issues. More than ever we need to see our services continue in our community. We value our lottery supporters so much as we rely on funds to keep our debt centre going.
‘One of our clients has just had a baby and cannot get the baby registered at present, which means she cannot get the right benefits. She is really struggling financially, but we were able to bless her with food and a huge supply of nappies, baby wipes and other personal items that had been donated. One of our precious volunteers even brought a baby outfit and delivered this to her. She was overwhelmed and we know she will remember the birth of her baby tinged with special memories of people that care. This is one of the benefits of being a charity that uses volunteers that love to go the extra mile, providing wee wows, something that makes a person go 'Oh wow' the extra mile.’
