£120 needed for a school trip
From york - 40 years old.
R is a single mum of two who had to give up full time work when a family member who looked after her children died. She couldn't afford child care and is now on universal credits. R's daughter started secondary school this year and doesn't know anybody. The school are having a trip but R cant afford to pay for her daughter to go. The school have helped with some of the cost, but had said they would pay all of it, so R still needs to pay £150 towards it. R needs to pay a £50 deposit or her child loses her place.
