We have been working with a dad in Dudley whose washing machine broke down during lockdown. His volunteer has been doing the family laundry for him, but he really needs a new machine. His disabilities mean that he is unable to use a launderette. I would like to request a donation of £120 towards the cost of a new washing machine.
Mum is moving house and needs some support with getting a new gas cooker. She has 3 children, including 2 year old twins. She is struggling for finance as her working hours have been affected by COVID-19 and her child care costs have risen due to trying to fit in with her rotas. She would very appreciate this finance to help her with preparing meals for the family.

F is a lone parent on a low income. She has been off work with no pay after contracting Covid-19. During this time she has not been able to pay her rent and is now in arrears. She can afford her weekly rent but has not got enough to pay the arrears. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
I am working with a lovely mum in Stourbridge. She has a diagnosis of terminal cancer but she is doing really well to keep herself and her children functioning as normally as possible.

I would like to request a donation of £150 towards the cost of this in order to replace it and manage the stress she is experiencing in this situation
This lady split up from her partner in June and had to leave her home. She is now living in rented accommodation with her 2 year old daughter. Her only income is Universal Credit and Child Benefit. She does not receive child maintenance as her former partner has lost his job. The foodbank have been supporting them but they urgently need a tumble dryer.
