Former homeworker Tina Lee cannot thank Abta LifeLine enough for its help to make her every day life more bearable.
Tina worked in the travel industry for 30 years, most recently for Hays Travel, but was left disabled after treatment for a brain tumour.
After suffering a severe reaction to treatment, which caused the tumour to swell and damage her eyesight for life, Tina had to give up her job.
Abta LifeLine stepped in to help Tina after she was forced to downsize to a smaller house in Weston-super-Mare.
The charity launched an appeal to raise £4,000 to improve Tina’s garden, which was too dangerous for her to walk around due to uneven paving slabs.
The decking has now been replaced, the patio made even, and artificial turf laid to make a maintenance-free garden for Tina.
Tina said: “This has made an incredible difference to my every day life. I would not have ventured out into my garden if I was at home on my own before; I was falling over because of my sight.
“I feel so much better because I am not stuck in the house all the time and I am really grateful to Abta LifeLine.”
