Moving house can be challenging at the best of times, but when you’re hard up and have lived in your home for a decade, accumulating a lot of stuff that won’t fit into your new, smaller home, it can become a nightmare. That was the situation facing Sarah (not her real name) who was about to move from one council home to another, wondering what on earth could she do with all the junk? She needed a skip but couldn’t afford one.

In desperation Sarah made a call to the Henry Smith Fund – a local charity that makes small grants to help those in financial need.  And we at the Henry Smith Fund were delighted to help but sadly we couldn’t afford the full cost of the skip hire either. So, we made a call to Chambers who nobly stepped in, providing a large skip for a very significantly reduced fee. Chambers handled all the arrangements, making sure that the skip was in place exactly when and where Sarah needed it.

Although moving house wasn’t easy for Sarah it was very much more manageable than it would have been without the help of Chambers. We are delighted that we could work with Chambers to support a local lady in need and are very grateful for their active and wholehearted cooperation.
