Grieving girlfriend struggling to manage

Our client was a young woman, who having recently begun a work trial, with the hopes of getting a permanent job from it, was hit with the news that her boyfriend had been involved in an accident and killed.  Unfortunately, her new employer wasn't able to keep the position available for her, while they didn't know how long she'd need off work to grieve.  To make matters worse, she's been kicked out of where she was living, and is now staying with a relative, who is supporting her to the extent of making sure she takes her medication okay.  So she's been left with no income, no home, no boyfriend, but is being chased for debts.  We were asked if we could offer a small amount of money to help her somewhat.  We agreed to send £100 to her to help her out.

Hospital Accommodation

We were made aware of a Mum who has been staying in the accommodation made available to parents when they have a child in the hospital.  This Mum, her daughter had had an accident and to date she has been through seven operations on her leg, and they are hoping she will be able to leave hospital this Friday, after her operation taking place today.  As the daughter has been getting very depressed with all this going on, her Mum has been staying overnight at the hospital but has to pay £15 per night to do this.  She has had so much time off work they are no longer able to pay her, and she has sold everything she can to raise money to pay for this accommodation.  We agreed to pay the accommodation up to the Thursday night and send across some extra funds so that they are able to buy some food for when they return home.
