Miss C was originally living with her partner, however they separated and she left the property taking no furniture with her. From here, she sofa surfed for a year staying on friends' sofas while trying to save for a property of her own. She then became pregnant and managed to secure a property but has no furniture. Friends have helped with a lot of household goods but she is still without some furniture such as curtains and wardrobes for when the child arrives, can you please help?
A divorced mum with two school age children has been visiting the foodbank for help with food. She has not received maintenance from her ex in support of the children for well over 3 or 4 years and is surviving on old style Tax Credits and Housing Benefits. Her washing machine has now broken down and she would be grateful for some help towards getting a new machine. Her mental health is not good at present due to the strain of coping on her own.
T is a single parent of six children who has struggled with poor mental health for a number of years. She has often felt unable cope with daily living and her older children have often been left to care for their younger siblings. T has not worked as she battled with illnesses and they have been surviving off limited benefits. Her children have recently been provided with new bedding but the youngest do not have their own beds. Bunk beds would fit in the limited space and give these young children somewhere to sleep safely. Any help would be so appreciated.
Mr C recently had a house fire in the kitchen which destroyed a number of appliances, including the fridge. Although he lives on benefits, he has been able to replace most of the other damaged items, but has not been able to afford a new fridge. Mr C is wheelchair bound and an under-counter fridge would allow him to easily reach his food. Any support would be so appreciated.
This lady suffers from Fibromyalgia, causing pain all over her body, severe back pain, and breathing difficulties, so standing at the sink is extremely hard for her. Her current dishwasher has broken, and she was trying to save up for a replacement, but has had a deduction from her benefits. She has a small amount saved, and three friends have promised additional funding to complete the purchase. It would be such a blessing to be able to purchase this item for her.
