£95 needed for a Car MOT

SC lost his job earlier this year and his benefits were delayed which has put him in arrears with several providers. He has now started to receive benefits but his car needed an MOT & it failed.

£70 needed for electric and train fares

N is working with Christians Against Poverty and is working towards bankruptcy. He's been living on a low level of Universal Credit, with many deductions so some weeks he can hardly afford to put money on his electric meter. Happily he has just secured some work cleaning, but he won't get paid for over a week, and has to pay to travel to the job. We're looking for help with electric top up money for his flat, and also the train fare for getting to work. Many thanks.

£115 needed for Electric and gas payments, fresh and chilled food

J has recently come out of prison, and he is determined to get life back together again for his wife and 2 kids. They've been really up against it with water, electric and gas bills etc whilst he wasn't around but they're now being really careful with their budgeting. He tells me he wants to pay for his own food rather than relying on foodbank, and when he gets some money he wants to buy a bible for his wife, as they've started going to church as a family.

£105 needed for an MOT, Service & Tyres

This young single mum is in need of financial help. Her car is due an MOT in 2 weeks, but she doesn't have enough to cover the cost.

£75 needed for food and bus fares

M is working with Christians Against Poverty to sort his finances, and is on track to have his debts written off. He is on a very low level of Universal Credit, and there are quite a few deductions from this before he receives his monthly income. He lives in a remote village, and his budget doesn't even allow for bus fares into the job centre. I've referred him to our foodbank, but he has no chilled, frozen or fresh food currently. We'd love to be able to help with these basic needs.
