This request is for a single mum with 5 children. The family are struggling to make ends meet and the need for a cot bed for the youngest is causing a lot of stress as mum doesn't know how to stretch the budget to cover this. As the youngest is now almost 6 months old and still in a Moses basket the need for the cot bed becomes more urgent. Any help towards this would be gratefully received and make life just a little bit easier for this mum.

S is working with Christians Against Poverty to sort her debts, and is at the beginning of a long repayment plan. She's opened up her coal fire to try and save heating costs, but she needs £50 to have the chimney swept and some money for coal, and a cowl to go on top of the chimney. It would be great if we could help. When I explained about Acts 435 she couldn't believe that people might help her.
L has been regularly attending the Christians Against Poverty Freshstart Course to help her deal with life controlling addictions. She is currently working full time in low paid work in connection with local tourism and is paying off debts as well so her budget is very tight. L desperately needs some dental treatment including a tooth extraction which she just can't afford on her current income, and she'll have to pay to travel to a dentist taking NHS patients.
