Tyler’s appeal for Electric Wheelchair

In March 2016 the JCF West London team supported an event to raise funds and awareness for an illness named Ataxia. At this event manager Julia Romp was privileged to meet a 9 year old boy called Tyler who was there along with his family.

Street Care Appeal

We have recently been deeply moved by the plight of a homeless 64 year old woman Marie Parnes who has been living on the streets for the past seven and a half years after becoming a victim of domestic violence. She spends the nights riding busses, she is scared to sleep and NO ONE will help her because she fled her abusive English husband without the correct paperwork to get the help she needs. It doesn’t matter that she has had a stroke, has burns on her arm and a daughter that doesn’t want her – she just keeps being put back on the streets. JCF NW London Manager, Hayley Hemmingway-Hare found Marie and helped her to find a bed for the night and has been campaigning ever since to get Mariethe right care and help that she desperately needs.
