Our agents are helping a lady that suffers with hearing and sight loss, as well as a degenerative condition. She is existing currently on only £55 a week to cover everything she needs, such as utilities, bills and food. While they were visiting this lady they realised she has no means of cooking in her accommodation apart from a toaster. They asked us if we could help her out by sending enough money for her to be able to purchase a microwave oven, as she is struggling to meet her current needs let alone have anything left over to save. We agreed to send her £50 to help her out.

Our help was needed this time for a lady who has been working as a carer for the past 15 years, working 7 days a week just to stay on top of her bills. The pressure of this has caused her to have two heart attacks, leaving her with ongoing problems. She has suffered domestic abuse in the past too, meaning she ended up loosing her home and is struggling to keep the one she is in now. She has been advised to apply for a debt relief order, but does not have the £90 fee to apply. We agreed to cover this for her, and offered an extra £40 to give her a little bit of a buffer.

We were asked to help a man who has been living on the streets for some time, or in very temporary situations. He has now been offered a room in a shared hous. He is on an extremely low income and has used most of that money to pay for the deposit for the room. He has nothing but what he stands up in and needs some bedding, crockery, etc. We agreed to send over £70 so that he could purchase what he needs.
