Faulty boiler in rented property

Our contact asked us to help a lady who is living in a rented property where the boiler has not been functioning properly.  Her landlord has been ignoring her pleas for help with this, and it has got to the point that the environmental health officer has stepped in and given the landlord 7 days to call out an engineer and rectify the issue.  In the meantime she has had to run freestanding electric heaters to stay warm.  The knock on of this is that over the past three days she has put £40 on the electricity meters, which is money she has had to borrow from a relative.  We agreed to send the lady £60 so that she can repay the £40 and have £20 spare to put on her meter.
