£120 needed for a washing machine
From Donisthorpe - 51 years old.
This 51 year old woman lives alone in her late mother's council tenancy and is struggling to make ends meet on universal credit. She has fibromyalgia and depression. Recently both her electric cooker and washing machine broke down and she cannot afford to replace them. A local charity has agreed to provide an electric cooker but she also needs a washing machine, as the launderette is four miles away and her mobility is not good. £120 would cover the cost of a reconditioned item.
