£120 needed for a Baby cot and new mattress
From Torquay - 30 years old.
A couple with a premature baby and living in social housing, through little fault of their own have accrued a large amount of debt (which is being sorted). The baby has been in hospital with respiratory problems, exacerbated by damp in their flat. The baby has no cot and is sleeping in a pram but is getting too big to be safe. The couple are on a fixed benefit income, the father has had 2 strokes and cannot work, the mother is being investigated for multiple sclerosis.
