£40 needed for a clothes voucher

K is married with three children. His daughter is only 16 months old. When she was born, his wife became very ill, she developed a disease called Pemphigus and became so depressed that she is now on strong medication. K has had to stop working in order to look after the whole family. This is extremely hard for him. He relies on welfare benefits but there is never enough money for essentials. He desperately needs clothes for his children. £100 towards a Primark voucher would be a great help.

£120 needed for a washing machine

K is a mother of 4 who has just lost her mum. She is on benefits and has a small amount of debt which means she has little spare money. Her washing machine broke 3 months ago and she has been relying upon the help of a neighbour for her washing. Her children are not able to go through the night as yet and so washing mounts up very quickly. Please could you help K to get a new washing machine of her own.
