Former teacher undergoing cancer treatment is struggling

A former teacher diagnosed with cancer is currently undergoing high dose chemotherapy and awaiting a stem cell transplant.  She is a single parent and former teacher, now unable to work due to her diagnosis.  She has no family and is no longer able to drive.  She is struggling financially and was recently forced to move home through no fault of her own.  We agreed to send her £150 to use towards food and energy costs.

Moving home

Our agents contacted us about a single mum, 28 years old,  with two children, 10 and 4.  The youngest has recently been diagnosed with Autism and they have moved into a property that allowed him to have his own bedroom.  This mum has no family support as her own mother was/is a drug user and she has had no contact with her for 17 years.  She has had to give up her job which she enjoyed to care for her youngest and was desperately in need of some items for the childrens rooms.  She needed quilts and bedding for their beds and curtains for their rooms.  The youngest suffers with incontenience due to his disability so she needed a new mattress for him, as well as some form of mattress protection.  She had taken out a social fund loan to help her and the repayments for this would soon begin, so she was already be disadvantaged financially.  We sent across £200 to cover all of this, so she could purchase what she needed.
