£120 needed for a bed
From Leicester - 78 years old.
This 78 year old man has had two strokes in the past six months and relies on neighbours to help him with everyday demands. He has lost his independence and struggles to manage on state retirement pension and an occupational pension - he worked as a porter. One of his neighbours takes his washing to a local launderette, as he has no washing machine. A local charity will supply a washing machine but his bed has broken and he needs a new one. £120 for a bed would make such a difference to his life.
