M's property was flooded in the Boxing Day floods a couple of years ago. Unfortunately her situation hasn't much improved and whilst she is slowly putting her house back in order she is still struggling. The autumn months are already making her home cold and she knows help with her staircase will make all the difference to her mental state and the warmth of the building. She works full time but on a low wage so doesn't have any spare money for "extras". Thank you so much.
J is a recovering alcoholic. She has recently moved home and has access to her two young sons on a weekend, however they are unable to stay over as she is struggling financially and has not got the funds to purchase 2 mattresses for their bed bases. J is doing fantastic with her recovery and would love to be able to have her sons over to stay. Please help with the cost towards two mattresses enabling J to spend quality time with her children.
This single mother of a 1-year-old baby has a lot of debt but is now working to get her life back on track and pay off her debts. She has just moved into a rented flat but it needs equipping and furnishing. Her greatest need is for a washing machine. She was very nervous about asking for help (suffers with anxiety and depression) but was so happy to know we might be able to help. The money would top-up for a new one or we’d find a good second-hand one.
