£110 needed for a cooker

This lady is on Universal Credit and, in the last six weeks, has had to replace her hoover and washing machine. She has no money, due to the increase in gas and electric, and her cooker has stopped working. The only way she can heat a pan is by standing with the cooker and holding the button in. She lives in a remote area where there are lots of power cuts so she needs to have a gas cooker. This lady is happy to look for a preloved gas cooker and has a friend who is a registered gas fitter.
