i am writing to ask you for funding for a voluntary project i am involved with, I must start by telling you a little about my self.
I am 41 years old and suffer from a lot of health issues, one of them being mental health problems, this unfortunatley does not allow me to be in regular employment and this affects my depression and it also puts a huge strain on my family.
Due to this i give my time up to volunteer for the local church by maintaining the church yard, i do this as and when i feel well enough. it could be once a week or once every couple of weeks. i find it a stunning and relaxing place to be, also a special place as it is where i married my lovely wife 3 years ago, it aslo brings me closer to my mum who sadly passed away last year with cancer aged just 59 after such a long hard fight..
as it is a fairly big church yard I struggle to keep it looking good with the equipment i have, sadly the church is not in a position to help me out financially with getting some equipment, they did manage to buy a strimmer for me last year which is fantastic,
what i am looking for is some funding from companies that like conservation and wildlife so i could purchase a second hand ride on lawnmower with a grass collector, and some other basic tools, so i could make a better job, also some funding to go towards things like wild flowers and bird boxes ect. i hope this is something you could support me with
I am also looking into writing my own blog on my story and adventures down at the church yard, for all to follow my progress and to share the memmories and the wildlife that happen..
thankyou for taking time to read my story
