We are supporting a mum with 4 children. She is a historical drug user and has had mental health issues but is currently clean and stable. She really struggles to stay on top of the home and recently everything has got on top of her. We have volunteers who are helping her declutter and get all the washing clean. However so that she can stay on top of this herself in future she has asked us to help her get a tumble dryer. We have a volunteer who has contributed the rest of the money needed.
This single mother of a 1-year-old baby has a lot of debt but is now working to get her life back on track and pay off her debts. She has just moved into a rented flat but it needs equipping and furnishing. Her greatest need is for a washing machine. She was very nervous about asking for help (suffers with anxiety and depression) but was so happy to know we might be able to help. The money would top-up for a new one or we’d find a good second-hand one.
