We are facing numerous
appeals to carpet multi rooms. As a small charity we are unable
to consider carpeting more than one room - this must be the
most essential room and dimensions and a quote must be given
to include cost per sq mtr/yd .
We will however consider
more than one room if the appeal can be justified but each room
must be specified and priced accordingly. We may reduce the
award however to one room.
All goods are supplied
without responsibility of the Trustees or Officials of the Mother
Humber Memorial Fund.
The beneficiaries must check any recall notices which manufacturers
may from time to time issue.
Tumble Dryers - In view of the continuing concerns regarding
the safety of these items and the high running costs we will
not consider appeals for Tumble Dryers until further notice
for beds must state type, size and price together with name
of proposed supplier.
Appeals for ‘special sized or orthopaedic’ beds
must be accompanied by written support from a practitioner.
