£120 needed for a washing machine
From Edinburgh - 39 years old.
Last year A lost his job and as a direct result his family lost their home. Their 6 year old son had just started school but they were placed all around the city in homeless accommodation. In order to keep their son in his P1 class they were taking many buses daily to get him to and from school. This was financially crippling. They have now found a private tenancy within the catchment of the school but it has no washing machine. They simply have no money to purchase one.
