A 44 year old refugee mother has been given two bikes for her children, which need quite a bit of repair. The teen children are keen to get them roadworthy with maintenance supplies and to enjoy cycling this summer. However they will then need helmets, gloves, knee covers, lights, and a bike pump. All their savings have been used during the pandemic and their spirits are low. Please help them to use the bikes and take up an environmental option, as they have no other transportation.

Mum has managed to buy second hand furnishings to turn it into a home, but sadly she cannot afford to buy bunk beds and mattresses for her daughters, so at the moment they are sleeping in Mum's bed and she is sleeping on the floor.

M has moved back with his ex-partner to support her through a traumatic time. She has 2 children and they have temporarily been taken into care. They are allowed to visit the children at a family centre in a nearby town. They would like to see them as often as possible, but they are both struggling financially and the travel costs are beyond their means. They would be so grateful for help with these costs so that they can visit the children on a regular basis until they are allowed back home.
R is a single mother with two teenage daughters. She is struggling on a very low income, and can't cope with extra expenses. Her eldest daughter's bed was broken and has now collapsed completely.
