Looking for a connection

We had an easy case yesterday.  Our agents contacted us about a lady who lives in their area that they are helping.  She is taking care of seven children, and her husband is unable to work due to ill health.  Her oven broke down last week, leaving her unable to prepare meals for the family.  Our agents have managed to source her an oven via Freecycle, but they needed to be able to pay for it to be properly installed.  We agreed to cover that cost of £50.

Man on a fresh start needs help

We were contacted by a group that supports people, giving them the opportunity to a fresh start in life.  This man was facing life on his own, following a brief spell in custody as he was no longer living with his wife on his release.  All he had was a place to live, a bed and a kettle and was existing on sandwiches and junk food, the cost of which was prohibiting him from being able to save any money in order to purchase an oven.  He can't access food banks as mostly the food they have available requires cooking.  We agreed to send across enough money to supply an oven, and our agents said that they could from this sum get someone qualfied to install it for him.
