Thank you so much for your grant of the 11th [March 2015]. I haven't yet managed to contact Mrs T but I know that she will be delighted and extremely grateful. She does not have an easy life and I am so pleased that you have managed to make it a bit easier. Once again, we in SSAFA would like to thank you most sincerely for helping one of our worthly local clients.
