£60 needed for decorating equipment

E is an extremely vulnerable young person suffering from severe mental health difficulties. Although she now has secure accommodation and is no longer homeless, unfortunately E has been struggling with a damp issue for quite some time which has led to her wallpaper being removed and damage being caused to her belongings.

This lady's husband was involved in a horrific car accident over 2 years ago and nearly died. She is on a low income.
