Redundancy and money woes

Simon was made redundant from his marketing job and was surviving solely on benefits.

The break down

It was Winter and he had been out of work for some 10 months when his central heating boiler broke down. Coming on top of his redundancy and financial problems, this was the final straw.

Enter CIMBF

Faced with the costs of urgent repairs, no savings to cover the costs, and no possibility of a loan, Simon turned to the Benevolent Fund in desperation.

Results

The CIM Benevolent Fund was able to help Simon with the essential boiler repair costs and at least get his heating working again.
