“My wife was taken ill. She went into hospital and the doctors told me she didn’t have very long.
I wanted to go and visit her every day but there isn’t a bus service from where we live to the hospital. I only have my pension and I couldn’t afford all that petrol.
I tried to eat less so I could fill the car up instead. It was worth it to spend time with her.
Sophie’s Fund gave me some money so that I could afford to visit my wife. I was so grateful. It meant I could spend time with her and say goodbye.”
