This lady is a single mum of three children. She also cares for a child of her ex-partner much of the time. She gets little or no support from her ex-partner and struggles to manage the family budget. She is able to cope without getting into arrears so long as she does not need to make large purchases, therefore she has been managing without a cooker since her old one broke several weeks ago. She likes to cook proper meals for her children and would benefit from help to do this.
We are working with a mum and teenage girl in Stourbridge who are engaging really well with their volunteers. Unfortunately, the teenager’s bedroom furniture is quite broken and we need to replace both the bed and wardrobe. We would be very grateful if a donation of £120 towards these items could be made so that this lovely girl can have a “proper” bedroom.
G has a long term illness and cannot work, so is receiving benefits. For the last five months she has had to wash all her family clothes by hand as her old washing machine has broken. Due to her unemployment she has no spare money to replace her washing machine. Any donation would make a really big difference to her.
