M and M have recently started working with Christians Against Poverty for debt help. They live on the poverty line and struggle to clothe their teenage daughter. The daughter needs some basics- underwear, leggings and shoes. It would be a relief to this family if we could help.
'D' has five children, including twins, who need new coats and shoes. She and her husband are struggling to pay bills since she has had to give up her work to care for two of her children who have special educational needs. Her husband is in paid employment but the income is low. The social worker is trying to arrange increased benefits but this is uncertain. She would also like to use some of the money towards heating bills.
Having with diligently worked with Christians Against Poverty to become debt free, this lovely lady is working hard to keep on top of her finances and provide on her own for her two boys. Her younger son is about to move schools in order to access the level pastoral support that he needs, and unfortunately the cost of school uniform is prohibitively high for her. Any donations you could make towards this would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
A family we have been supporting for nearly 2 years have recently suffered a bereavement of a close family friend. They are already struggling to repay debts on top of the normal monthly expenses, due to a low income. We would like to help them afford suitable clothes to go to the funeral and avoid them taking out a loan to cover the cost otherwise leaving them in more debts and struggling further each month. Many thanks.
This young man has done a great deal of volunteering to help the church, but he is struggling to cope on universal credit alone. He needs appropriate clothes for job interviews and a bus pass to get to them. He would be very grateful for your help.
S is working with Addaction to overcome her alcohol addiction. She only has her pension so money is tight. She wants to be able to get out more and walk the beautiful Cornish cliffs. Her counsellor thinks this will be very beneficial in her recovery. She needs proper walking boots and socks to do this. Please can you help her.
