Mr & Mrs Kent's Bungalow

A Ramp and Handrail

We helped Mr and Mrs Kent towards the cost of the installation of a ramp and hand rail, for easier and safer access, as they both have serious  mobility problems.

 

Roof Repairs

 McMurtie                                              

When retired postman Claude McMurtrie needed help with repairs to his roof, he applied to The Rowland Hill fund for a grant.

 ‘I had incurred a lot of expense in repairs to the house and it was good to get help from Rowland Hill,’ says Claude, who retired from The Bridge of Weir delivery office 10 years ago.

 ‘As an ex-soldier, I also received some financial help from SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity. Both organisations were very helpful and I’d never thought of applying to them before. ‘I was glad of the help from Rowland Hill. The process was no problem at all and they definitely helped me big time.’
