£120 needed for a mattress
From Bradford - 24 years old.
L and her partner have just moved into a Housing Association property, but the donated bed has a very old, worn double mattress and L is suffering with back pain, and not able to sleep properly. The couple are on a very low income and have a large amount of debt, which they are making repayments to as quickly as their benefits allow, but this leaves them with very little for day-to-day living so they cannot save anything towards larger items. A new mattress would make a huge difference to them.
