Just when some people are most in need, others have less to give. In these lean times, greater numbers are relying on charity. But donations are getting harder to raise. Judy Nord hopes her card-making will some day raise money for charity. Her cancer diagnosis forced her to give up paid work. And when she’s not receiving treatment in hospital, she is at home, often worrying about how to survive on benefits of less than 60 pounds a week. The cost of living has risen sharply. And for the first time in her life, she is dependent on help from family and from charity.

 

 

I saw a lot of people out there that really really really do need that support. I wouldn’t have this roof over my head still, that, you know ,would have been gone, this, I just wouldn’t be out, afford the mortgage. I wouldn’t be out for the bills or anything. I don’t know. I don’t know where I’ll be.

 

 

Charity’s been squeezed in two ways-- demand for their services has increased by 72% in the last twelve months, but almost a third have suffered falls in donations. That means many charities are having to cut costs by making staff redundant.

 

 

If the governments are bailing out the banks who have caused this problem, they need to think about the victims of recession and our work and therefore a financial package to support our work with the victims of recession is important.

 

 

Corporate donations from the city are dwindling, and falling property prices in the value of legacy is diminishing. It means there’s more pressure on individuals to be generous.

 

 

Charity begins…I would think of it at the moment.

 

 

/We could afford it, we would ***donate it.

 

 

I think I would volunteer as well in different ways than probably just giving money.

 


 

Still give. You know, I give every month food like , I am on diet ? so now it didn't affect me much at all.

 

As tougher times threaten, charity just can’t afford to keep losing.
