Sofa surfing mother finally has home

A mother of two children, ages 2 years and 6 months, has been sofa surfing with the children, waiting on finding a home.  She has finally been offered a place to stay and is currently in receipt of Universal Credit, but won’t receive any more money until the 18th July.  She scraped together everything she had to find enough to cover the first weeks rent as this was the only way she could sign up for the property.  Having been sofa surfing she has no white goods at all, and no money to purchase anything.  We agreed to send her £80 to go towards a reconditioned washing machine, which was the one thing she desperately needed.
