Woman needs washing machine

Our clients contacted us about a client they had recently been put in contact with.  She has been offered her first tenancy after having lived in hostels for the past two years.  She has no white goods, nor furniture, only what she could carry.  Our agents have helped her source a bed and some furniture, funding has been sought for kitchen appliances, but she still needed a washing machine.  As she had been quite fortunate in what had already been supplied towards her, we agreed to send across £50 so that she could use that to find a second hand or reconditioned one on one of her local selling sites.

Man with spinal issues needs access to washer

Our client, a man in his middle 50s, has recently been housed into his own accommodation, but it is completely unfurnished.  His agents applied to his local council for a home needs award, and they do help to a degree, but there is a limit of course.  A mattress was found for him via his local Freecycle, but he needed a washer and some bedding, as having spinal issues means that he is incontinent and needs to wash his bedding regularly.  We agreed to send over £200 to put towards a washing machine and some bedding.

A home of his own

We had a man referred to us that had been provided with his own accommodation.  His council had very generously helped him with certain items of furniture, but he had no way to keep his clothes and bedding clean, and with serious eyesight issues, taking them to a laundrette was not an option.  A very reasonably priced washing machine was found for him, purchased on his behalf and will be delivered to him this Friday.  He is extremely grateful for the help.
