E has been using a table top hob to cook for her and her family since her cooker was deemed unsafe. She is unable to afford a new cooker and a friend donated her portable hob to help out, but it is proving difficult to manage to cook for 6 using just two hot plates and a tiny oven. She would be grateful for this money as she can secure a tested second hand one from a local supplier and would be able to get it as soon as funds are there so she can cook christmas dinner. Please help, thank you.
