S is a single man whose only income is from benefits he receives. He has recently used all his savings to pay for his father's funeral and now finds that he is having great difficulty in meeting some of his bills, particularly his fuel bills. He just needs this money to get back on his feet. Can you help him please?
I and his partner P are in their 50's and live in a small flat which they are renting and which they take pride in. Recently their hoover broke. They are both looking for work, but are currently on Universal Credit. They can just about cope with day to day living expenses but do not have the funds for extras, such as this. They have approached Acts, hoping that people may be able to reach out to them in their need and be able to fund a replacement vacuum cleaner.
J recently collapsed with a ruptured spleen and on release from hospital found her fiance had died of a heart attack. She was placed in a hostel in the clothes she was standing in and it has been a totally tragic situation. His family want nothing to do with the funeral, but it is so important for J to give him a decent send-off as they were engaged and had been together for 6 years. Funds would pay for a coffin spray so it is not bare, as we gather in small numbers to lay him to rest next week.
N's house was recently infested with fleas and she had to get rid of carpets, curtains, bedding and certain pieces of furniture. This unexpected expense was too much for her as a mother of 2 as she is on Universal Credit and so, she is unable to afford gas and electric and food for a couple of days in between payments. Please give towards this to help give N some breathing space in such a financially difficult time.
