£120 still needed for travel costs

A tragic story. H was bullied at school. She changed schools but the bullying continued. H's mother's appeal to the school met with little success. H began to stop eating and drinking and eventually was admitted to hospital. The lack of fluid had damaged her internal organs so she was taken to a special unit 50 miles away. Her mother, a single parent of 2, cannot work with the stress and the travel costs to see her daughter are prohibitive. This grant will make a huge difference for this family.
