The client has been a volunteer with our projects for the last few years and is also responsible for helping her elderly neighbours with washing and drying clothes. She lives on a retired accommodation site and volunteers to help her neighbours who need that level of support do all their washing. Unfortunately the washing machine and dryer were recently stolen and she has been unable to carry on helping. The funding would buy a new dryer and enable her to continue helping her elderly neighbours.
This young man has just been given his own place, but he is currently sleeping on a chair as he doesn't own a bed. He has a heart problem so is unable to work at moment, and he has no family able to help.
A family in Cumbria would really appreciate support to get bunk beds and mattresses. The grandmother has care of 2 of her grandchildren, and also has adult children and 2 of their children living with her. The boys who are in her care are currently sharing a double bed. Having bunk beds would make a big difference to the boys and give them some space to use their bedroom for playing in as well as sleeping. This would help family relationships. The family would be very grateful for any help.
