S, a single mum with a severe mental health condition, was recently assessed as needing support financially through a Personal Independence Payment application. Whilst this will help her dramatically, going forward, the extra income isn't likely to arrive anytime soon. With her children home for the summer holidays, a gift would really help her, as she struggles to find the extra money required for food and the occasional bus fare for a trip to the beach. Thank you!
