This lady became homeless 18 months ago due to a house fire, when she lost everything. She slept on a friend's sofa for a while but then moved to homeless accommodation 10 miles away from her home town of Oldham. She has now been accepted by First Choice Homes to have a place of her own back in Oldham. However, she has no household items at all so a fridge freezer would make all the difference to her fresh start.
