I'm raising money for a dear friend. She met and fell in love with a man who wasn't British, soon after she fell pregnant and gave birth to a beautiful little boy. After troubles growing up he was found to have autism. He's now 6. She asked permission from the home office to get married which they granted. After they were married they applied for his Visa to stay in the country. There efforts were declined, they appealed at great cost and won. Now the home office have appealed and the appeal has been granted. She is British, as is her son, and works full time to provide for her family, her husband is the full time carer for their son. They claim no benefits and completely support themselves on her wages. If they don't fight he could be deported forcing her to give up her career and become a single mother living on benefits. She is desperately trying to avoid that, she wants to continue to work and and provide for her family. they have the chance to change the outcome. The appeal is going to rack up costs of up to £10,000 in legal fees, travel to and from London and missing work. I'm trying to do what ever I can to keep a family together. Once granted he can then work around their son, keeping them off benefits. Any donations will be extremely gratefully received and will go towards the fight to keep them together. Helping a family work and support themselves is what this country is supposed to be about, great British values. Forcing a British worker out of a job, on to benefits and making her a single mother doesn't seem right to me. Especially with a young son to consider. Don't you agree. I no a lot of people will just look and see he isn't British so they won't care, but this campaign isn't about nationality, at least it shouldn't be, it about family values, working to support your family, and most importantly where it can be achieved, keeping a mum and dad together to support their disabled son, please look into your hearts and do what you can.
