Fiona is working with Christians Against Poverty to sort her debts and they have recommended bankruptcy as her way forward.

D is an elderly lady in our church living on her state pension who struggles to get out and can't really afford a holiday this year, although she's been offered the chance to go away this summer. It would be fantastic to kick start her holiday savings (others in our church have already contributed), as she has increasing problems with mobility so this may well be the last year she can travel independently. Any contributions are gratefully received.

P is a young mum with 2 children trying to manage on benefits. Her cooker has broken so she is not able to cook proper meals for the children and buying ready cooked food is more expensive and draining on her budget. Saving for a new cooker seems impossible for her at present. P has many struggles at the moment and it would be a great encouragement to her if she could get a cooker

I was heartbroken to hear the story of a couple who describe themselves as 'white refugees.' W and G are UK citizens who have recently returned to the UK after living in South Africa. They had to leave because there was no employment and they simply couldn't survive. They are living with W's brother in Cornwall; it is a difficult situation because the brother is self employed and not getting much work. They are desperate for money just to live and their benefits will take 3 months to come.
I was contacted by a nurse from the Family Nurse Partnership to see if we could help her client. C spent a year in a local Women's Centre and has recently been placed in semi supported accommodation.

C is in receipt of Income Support and cannot afford to help herself. Would you be able to make a donation and help this young pregnant woman?
