£120 needed for Food and heating
From Newcastle upon Tyne - 42 years old.
S has applied for universal credit following ill health & has been told this will not be paid until January. She has used her reserves, been going without food & heat so she can feed the kids & warm the house when they come in from school, then going to bed so she can keep warm. She is drinking cold water to fill herself up. CAP are now involved, we are helping with sorting things out but would like to help her do a food shop to supplement her food bank items & top up her gas & electric. Thanks
