Couple sleeping on the floor

We were approached to see if we could possibly consider helping a couple who did not have a bed and were forced to sleep on the floor, without even a mattress.  The wife works, in a situation where she helps others, extremely less fortunate than herself.  They are in a huge amount of debt and unable to spend any money on a bed, and even if they come into any extra money she prioritises it for the debts first.  Our agent wanted to arrange for a bed to be purchased on their behalf and delivered.  (Our Agent knew any money we offered, they'd put straight to the debts.  The lack of a bed, and lack of sleep, was seriously affecting the mental health of them both).  The husband hasn't worked for five years as he suffers with extreme agoraphobia, and even the idea of a bed being delivered was sending him into extreme anxiety.  Our agent managed to find a well priced bed frame, mattress, and a bottom sheet for them, and using discount codes got the price reduced to £192.91 including delivery on a day and time of their choice.
