£50 still needed for Belly Dancing classes

Gwen is working poor, has a disposable income of £14.07 per week. Until recently she used to be given 1 hour overtime a week, this gave her enough money to take up belly dancing. It has helped her to build relationships, not be so isolated (she lives alone) have an outside interest, and also keep fitter. Sadly due to the loss of the overtime she will have to stop her one leisure activity. Can you help her to pay for classes until Christmas at which time she has been told she will get overtime again.
