I approached the Evelyn Norris Trust after a recommendation by the Actors Benevolent Fund, who had been helping me during my first year as a lone parent. The trust very kindly offered to give me a grant in order that I might be able to take my then six year old daughter abroad for a short while. Without their help, I doubt that I could have really afforded it. They have also very generously assisted me again this year. I cannot thank them enough. It is so nice to know that there are still some people out there willing to help when things are difficult.
