Woman and daughter in refuge needs help

The Police, has had to remove a lady and her daughter from their home, following a domestic violence situation, perpertrated by one of her twin teenaged sons.  They were moved into a B&B and then into a refuge for their safety.  Unfortunately just before this happened the mother had settled some overdue bills at the house, paid back a loan and did a large shop for food.  Her Universal Credit payment had covered that, but she now suddenly had no money to cover the transport costs to get the child to college, and has to walk 3 miles from the refuge to the home to take food to the second twin.  We agreed to send her £50 to help cover the fares for her and her son.
