N is a victim of domestic abuse and lives with her 2 teenage daughters. Her ex-partner smashed up doors in their house in a violent rage. She is making a fresh start with her girls but they have been living with the smashed doors reminding them of the past. Her girls are embarrassed to bring any friends home and they all just need this reminder of past difficulties removed. Enough was previously raised on Acts435 for 3.5 doors but they have 7 doors so we have added this second request.

Sadly the children and their dad had to leave their home due to violence and abuse from their mother/wife. The local Food/furniture bank has provided them with the majority of their needs. However there are only hard concrete floors at the property, for the safety and warmth of the small children Mr Oliver has requested carpets. He is doing a great job caring for his family

D and S have struggled with debts for some time and are now working well with Christians Against Poverty. Their 10 year old son has a rare life-limiting illness, which his sister died of in 2008, and they can't afford for him to go on this school trip and would dearly love for him to be able to join his class mates on this five day adventure at a purpose-built facility. Instead of having to cancel this trip it would be amazing to facilitate him being able to go.
We are supporting a mum and her 4 children. They have finally been able to move into a new home that is suitable for her oldest daughter who has cerebral palsy.

We have found a refurbished one for £120 and would love to get this for her and the family.

R has been an addict for years. She is a real success story as she is now clean and sober. Our local Christians Against Poverty centre is helping her to make a home for herself and her children. She needs a carpet in the children's room as the floor is bare concrete. The space is small so bunk beds would be ideal. We would be buying these second hand, your gift would be so helpful for this small, vulnerable family. Thank you.
