We are supporting a mum with 9 children, 7 of whom are under 16 years. Mum is really struggling with their behaviour and to stay on top of the house. She needs to lay some flooring in the living room. We have got a quote for £210.00 to buy the carpet and get it fitted. We have been able to raise £110 from volunteers and need the last £100. This will make such a huge difference to mum, both practically and to know that people care enough to support her in this way.

Her new flat is unfurnished and she has struggled to buy essential items as she receives a low wage for her part time work. She is still needs a washing machine and your contribution towards this would be most appreciated.

K is a single mum with 2 year old twins. She is a CAP client and when we visited her she told us she had lost her keys and she was having to climb in and out of the window to get into her property as she had lost her keys and she did not have sufficient money to pay for a locksmith to change the lock. As she is a single mum with 2 year old twin boys this was extremely difficult for her. We sorted out the locksmith immediately but would be grateful if you could help with the cost of this.

D is a 68 year old lady, who arrived in Chipping Norton homeless. As she was waiting for her paperwork she had no recourse to public funds. Wonderfully, as a church, people have taken her in & given her board & lodgings for 6 months - truly sharing the love of Jesus, who she now recognises as her Lord! This week she has been housed, & tomorrow we help her move. £120 will help D to buy curtain poles, paint & rugs (otherwise the floor is concrete) to start to make her new home. Thanks

The client came to us in desperate need of support when her kitchen flooded and ruined the carpets in her living room and dining area. They had to be removed and now the floor underneath is clearly stained and needs covering asap. The children are upset and embarrased to bring any friends around. THis funding would help pay the remainder of the balance to ensure the carpet is bought asap.

David is an elderly gentleman struggling with learning difficulties & surviving on a low income. David first came into the food bank a few months ago when it became apparent that he has been struggling to keep his flat clean. He would love to be able to clean his flat himself but hasn't been able to afford a vacuum cleaner. Having a vacuum cleaner would enable David to clean his flat himself which, as well as making his home a cleaner space, would also help him to feel more independent.
