We moved into our first home together in October 2014, 2 weeks later I was seriously assaulted by a "friend of ours" while I was sleeping. He received 6 years in prison, I was basically a shell of myself due to the aftermath of the attack (for reasons I don't want to publish), I was also unable to return to my full time job due to anxiety. I now work part time whilst my partner works 60 hours a week to cover the bills. I have just received compensation which barely covers the cost of a new kitchen we desperately need, we would love to do the garden but our budget won't stretch that far. Winning this competition would be a dream come true! After the bad start in our new home I want to make it nice, the garden is medium sized but requires new fencing and ideally somewhere nice to sit. My attacker is due to be released in August and I just want a nice home and garden to put all this behind us. Thank you for this opportunity and a small glimmer of hope.
