We are supporting a lovely single dad who is about to move house and has to leave with no white goods. He has various health conditions and is therefore unable to work so is struggling to find the money to pay for these items. We are hoping to support him buying a cooker and washing machine for his new home and are asking for £150 towards this. Thank you.
N is a single mum of two who has struggled with her mental health for some years. She is struggling with something similar to restless leg syndrome but it seems to impact on her whole body, so sleeping has become very difficult. She is currently signed off work sick (she works as a carer) due to her mental health and so has a reduced income and is unable to afford a weighted blanket. We would be so grateful if she was able to purchase this to help her sleep.
A is struggling with low income and having to pay bedroom tax. He has an eleven year old son who lives with him half of each week. He currently has no money to pay for food, gas or electric. He is receiving food parcels from the local foodbank but is unable to put any money into his prepayment gas and electric meters. £60 will enable him to top up his meters for one month and will make a difference to improve his mental health.
N has depression, arthritis in his neck and severe headaches. He is on Universal Credit, applying for Personal Independence Payment and struggling financially due to high energy bills which we are helping with. He has been struggling since the death of his wife 8 years ago, she died in their bed and he had been sleeping on the floor since. We have been able to get a new bed for N but this has no headboard or bedding. Having a bed with a headboard and bedding will help with N's physical health and also his mental wellbeing after sleeping on the floor for so long.
