Shaun and his family approached the RGF in August 2018. Shaun, having faced a serious illness requiring surgery, needed funding for driving lessons so he could learn to drive. Shaun wanted to be able to drive to widen his opportunities and to enable him to attend his ongoing hospital appointments without over-burdening his family – something we all know as independence! The RGF provided a grant to cover the cost of his driving lessons. Shaun is naturally delighted that he’s passed his driving test and commented: “I am so grateful to the Rob George Foundation for giving me the opportunity to take driving lessons. I’m pleased to say I passed first time. Without your help I would not have been able to do this. It has helped me build up my confidence to the extent that I’m now in the process of looking for a job, something I would not have had the confidence to do previously.”
Just reflect on Shaun’s words for a few seconds and really appreciate what the RGF is all about “making a difference…one individual at a time”, and why your support is so vital.
We all wish Shaun the very best for the future, a full recovery, and that his search for a job is successful very soon.
