B is blind and has just been given his own flat from the local authority and is now living independently for the first time. He hasn't been given any funding to furnish the property so he is looking for help to purchase a washing machine.
R was born with deformed feet, his situation made worse by shoes that were an attempt at correction but caused great discomfort. He's now awaiting surgery, one foot after the other, which will leave him on crutches for several months. R tries to be positive but sees himself housebound and therefore isolated during this period. He would be really grateful for a donation for taxis, which would help with his practical needs such as shopping and enable him to see friends and be good for his morale.
