This 50 year old woman has recently moved into her new flat after being homeless for around 18 months, following a bereavement and relationship breakdown with her son. The flat is unfurnished and she can't afford to pay for all of the white goods and furniture herself. Having help with a cooker will improve her mental health and help her settle in, as well as improving her physical health as she is currently very underweight.
This 60 year old woman on benefits has bipolar. She currently has no cooking facilities and no fridge/freezer as both appliances have broken. Please can we help her to replace them? Her social worker came to the foodbank and couldn’t take all the food due to her having no facilities to help her.
This lady is a young mum with small children on low income. Her fridge/freezer has broken and it would cost too much to repairs it. She has been told it’s not worth fixing. She can get one second hand but has no spare money to do this. She needs the fridge to keep the baby’s bottles cool. Friends are helping her as much as they can by keeping some freezer food frozen for her. Can you help to replace her fridge/freezer?
This request is for a washing machine to be fixed for a pensioner. The door has broken and the machine needs a completely new one. She does not have any warranties on it as she did not think it would ever break down. She cannot wash by hand as it’s to heavy for her to lift clothes when wet and her health is not good. She has no one close by to help her. Can you help her with this?
L has been using our foodbank for a while now, and in this time we have shared the good news of our wonderful savior Jesus Christ, and we can see a massive difference in him. L has fallen on some hard times and he told me yesterday his fridge has broken down. L cannot afford to replace it, please can you help us give this man a lift? Thank you.
A single man has just managed to get housing sorted out through the council so he can have his daughter stay overnight half the week, but he is in need of a bed and a carpet for the room. We have been supporting this man a short time and he is engaging well with us. He is in need of much emotional support and has been befriended by our pastor. He is very grateful for any help, a very proud man that didn't like to ask for help as he was embarrassed but he is now so thankful he has done.
R and her partner have 6 children. They are moving from an overcrowded situation to an empty house provided by the council. Their 14 year old son has learning difficulties and is overweight due to his disorder. He suffers from rage attacks and damages furniture. R needs to buy a very robust bed and bedroom furniture for his new room. R's partner has just returned to work after furlough so the family is struggling financially.
This mum and dad have five children. They are supporting one daughter with additional needs and her mental health right now. Sadly, her Disability Living Allowance has been stopped and the family are now in debt. They need to buy a second hand fridge/freezer. They are receiving support from appropriate agencies, but are under a lot of pressure. We are supporting them to access debt support. Could you help them to get this essential item?
This mum of 3 children has been struggling with debts created by her ex-partner before he left, as she only works part time. She is now managing these debts through an Individual Voluntary Arrangement and is looking forward to becoming debt free. However, her fridge freezer has blown up so she is now finding it difficult to buy and store food economically for her family, but has now way of buying one.
