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.
