£150 needed for an electric cooker

Could you help this young man who is in need of an oven/ cooker for his home, please? He has been recently housed in a new home, and although he has managed to equip his property with some essentials he still needs a cooker. He is not currently working so has little spare cash and would find it impossible to save the amount needed from his benefits. It would make such a difference to his day to day life if he was able to cook a full meal.
