£80 needed for paint to repair building work
From Gateshead - 42 years old.
GS has been in his council flat a long time but after they did some repair work and left a mess, he hasn't managed to pay for paint to cover it up. The amount the council gave him didn't cover it, and they wouldn't give more as he has rent arrears due to bedroom tax. He can't move out currently as he'd be fined due to the 'poor decor'. Being able to paint over the problem would literally help this man move forward.
