“People in the village have been wonderful and the offers of support we have received from our friends have been amazing.”
The family home will now take around three months to dry out. Karl will then be able to renovate the downstairs so the family can move back in to their cottage.
Karl contacted the Retail Trust for a non-repayable grant to support the family over the coming weeks.
“Because I am a manager, I recommend the Retail Trust to my employees all the time. It surprised me that I would be able to get help too. It humbled me, it was fantastic the support I received. To get the financial help I needed, lifted a huge weight off my shoulders. I am speechless at this grant. Thank you all so much. The pressure this will relieve off myself and my family at this time is incredible.”
Claire Keenaghan, Head of HR Operations at BrightHouse, said:
“BrightHouse has a long standing relationship with the Retail Trust and we are proud to highlight all of the service provisions. We have promoted their support to our colleagues during that time and know that many have used the counselling and advice services and their feedback has been excellent with positive messages of how the support has proved invaluable during challenging times. Karl, like many of our managers has always been an advocate of the Retail Trust , encouraging his teams to access the support when in need. We all appreciate the support the Retail Trust has been able to provide to Karl and his family.”
