Luke is a self-employed builder, supporting his family of four teenage children and his partner, who works part-time. Recently Luke fell off his ladder while working, and his injury has prevented him from working. As he's self-employed Luke is not entitled to any benefits - he doesn't get sick leave. His partner's wage is not enough for the six of them to live off while Luke recovers. Swindon Foodbank has been able to stand in the gap and help feed the family until Luke can return to work.
Luke does lots of voluntary work, and it's great to be able to support someone who so generously gives of himself to others.
