This lady is due to start a new, part time job shortly, which requires her to have a car. Her financial position is a perilous one at the moment. Due to family and work reasons, she had to leave her previous full time job. Unfortunately, she is overdrawn and her car insurance is £42 a month. Three months' premiums would enable her to start work, after which she would be able to afford the insurance herself. This new job is very important to her, for many reasons.

This lady, who is on benefits, was referred by a Council Social Worker, as she is moving into her first Council property and has very few white goods. However, a fridge freezer is essential to store food safely for her and her children. She is currently unemployed and looking after her youngest son who has Special Needs. He is not able to attend school on a full time basis. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
