On Sunday 26 December I came down with Covid and due to the circumstances had to self isolate away from my son for 10 days.
When I came out of isolation and got to have my son back home, the very next morning we woke up to the downstairs of our home flooded from a burst pipe.
We were both in complete shock - our flooring, carpets and furniture all got damaged. And, we are now trying to deal with the consequences.
It’s my son Tristan’s 8th birthday on 25 January (we actually share a joint birthday) and I’m trying desperately to make it a cheerful one for him.
He’d love a gaming chair and I’d love to get him a few party bits. Even though he cannot spend the day with his friends, I’d like to make it as special as possible.
However, I need to pay out more than £600 this month for the flooding insurance claim under building and contents. Along with massive electricity bills from drying the property.
Ive never gone through any of these fund raising sites, but if there is anything you can give, to help put a smile on my little boy’s face, however little, would be much appreciated.
