Lady in her late fifties at risk of losing her home

A lady in her late 50's is at risk of losing her home because she is struggling to keep it clean and tidy.  Several years ago she suffered a stroke which left her with intermittent weakness in one of her arms and her left-hand side.  Her landlord is proposing to seek possession of her home because she is not taking care of it.  They are though providing her with cleaning materials and a perching stool to help her.  She is unable though to afford a vacuum cleaner, which would help her stay on top of the cleaning.  We agreed to send her £80 so she can buy a lightweight machine that she will be able to use.

Single lady with no means of cooking

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.
