£80 needed for carpet

This elderly gentleman has recently been housed by the council after a time of homelessness. He became homeless after his retirement from the NHS where he was living in hospital accommodation. His new flat is unfurnished and our Church is sourcing household items to equip him with the essentials. The floors are bare and would benefit from some carpet to keep the flat warm. It's estimated that £300 would cover the cost of new carpets. Our Church would match fund the extra £150. Thank you.

£150 needed for Utility bills/Fuel

Michael and his wife have been having to decide whether to pay for utilities or fuel in their mobility car to attend health appointments. Michaels wife has several health issues including depression, kidney stones that may need surgery and musculoskeletal disability. The appointments vary in terms of frequency, but they feel if they can pay their water rates they would be able to fund the visits to the hospital, 52m round trip. They are also looking into using the Good turn scheme for transport.

£110 needed for sofa & chairs

I am working with a very independent lady who has suffered with mental health issues for a number of years. She is single and lives alone. She is struggling with debt, although she has a payment plan and is working her way through it. Her sofa and chairs are very old and the springs have gone so she desperately needs a new sofa and chairs as currently she is getting a bad back. She has seen a perfect set in a charity shop, which is firm and supportive for her. Please could you help this lady?

£140 needed for food and clothing

V was recently hospitalised having been found very unwell on the street. The UK did not recognise his nationality after he fled the 1998 Kosovo War. V is barred from employment and benefits by this bizarre legal limbo. Street homelessness is really taking a toll on his mental and physical health. We are working to establish V's status so he can rebuild his life. This process takes several weeks. In the meantime, please consider donating to support him with basic food and clothing.

£130 needed for a fridge freezer

This lovely young family are really struggling in these very difficult times The young mum and her four children put a very brave face on things. Unfortunately, their fridge freezer packed up yesterday and the quote for the repair was astronomical. To make things worse they lost lots of food. Any help would be a godsend. Two of the children are disabled, which adds further to their plight but they are always so happy.
