A grateful Jenny believes this will make life so much easier on the family.

Jenny said, ‘I was totally in awe that Gillian would do something like this. I’ll be paying rent but Gillian didn’t have to do something like this. She’s doing me a massive favour. 

I was in tears when she told me. I’m so grateful. I’ll be able to look after Blake in a safe and secure environment and it means the world.

‘In this house I can always be within eye shot of Blake. Gillian has given me peace of mind.
