£120 needed for a fridge freezer

D has recently got a flat again after being homeless for 4 months. He is trying to have a fresh start after dodgy landlords got their properties taken away.

At the moment he is surviving on cupboard food but finds it a struggle and pops into the homeless drop in for milk which is not great for him trying to take forward steps.
