Peggy’s story

Peggy lives with her daughter Sharon and dog Joey in their cosy bungalow. Sharon is dependent on her mother and Peggy’s husband, Ron, died 12 years ago, at the age of 83.

Peggy had worked at Evans Furniture in High Wycombe and so qualified for a small annuity from our charity. But when she recently received a large bill for essential plumbing work she was very worried.

“We didn’t know where to turn,” she says, “until we remembered The Furniture Makers’ Company.”

We were able to help settle the bill and we also visited Peggy and her daughter at home to make sure they were comfortable.
