I am 55 and live in a static caravan for most of the year. I need to raise money for a van for work. I'm too proud to claim DWP

by David Cheetham in Singleton, England, United Kingdom

Following the death of my mum who'm I'd cared for, for 10 years I found myself without a home so I bought a static caravan.

This keeps a roof over mine and my dog's head.

I started a business repairing/modernising static vans.

This was going really well until the cambelt went on my pickup so I sank my last £500 into a small van.

Unfortunately this was a disaster as it lost all compression and had to be scrapped after 2 weeks and now my attempt to remain solvent and self sufficient has ground to a halt.

I need to work to remain in my home, I need to work to keep my pride and sanity, I need work to keep me busy and to help with my depression(PTSD) I need help to buy a vehicle.....not a plush new vehicle just a reliable old girl will do.

I'm a proud man and it's taken a lot to ask for help but it's my last hope.

I know I may not come under the "must help" category or even a deserving one and I know there are far more worthy causes than mine but I do need some help and would be eternally grateful.

I don't necessarily need money.....even the donation of a cheap, unwanted roadworthy small van would be brilliant.

Thank you for reading.
