We helped out a family yesterday, a single parent mum and her two children. The mum is unable to work and is in receipt of disability benefits, and not in a financial position to buy a much needed bed for her oldest child. A brand new mattress had been purchased for them by another organisation, however they were still without a bed frame. The children are considered to be quite vulnerable, the reasons for which we cannot go into here. We sent them across £80 to use towards the cost of a bedframe. If they are fortunate, they might be able to pick up a good one second-hand and have some money left over for something else.

A very unwell mother had been sleeping on a mattress placed directly on the floor, but it had become so battered that it was no longer usable. Once we found out, we sent over the sum of £200 to pay for a new bed. She was extremely grateful and said she had never before had her own bed.
