£0 remaining for a pair of glasses
L has had an eye test and needs some new glasses. She has been working with Christians Against Poverty for debt help and has very little disposable income. L is waiting for an operation on her eye and, while she waits, she has quite a strong prescription and her eye is changing all the time. L is a single mum who is on benefits and her voucher for glasses will not cover the cost, which is why she has come to ask for help. Thank you for noticing.
D, who suffers with mental health problems, has recently moved into a flat after being homeless for twelve months. He receives Universal Credit, but is hopeful that he may soon be fit for work. D has two children who live with their mother, but his young son suffers from Cystic Fibrosis and is currently very ill in hospital and awaiting a double lung transplant. D visits him regularly, but the hospital is some distance away and the travel expenses are using up most of his money. His own needs are less important to him at present, but he has little to furnish and equip his home, so help to buy a washing machine would be a real blessing.

P, who has been a drug user for most of his life, hasn't previously been able to keep a stable home and this has stopped him from coming off the drugs. He now has a stable home and is being supported with a methadone recovery programme, but his home doesn't have a fridge freezer. P has serious heart and circulation problems, which make trips to the shop for food very difficult. A fridge freezer would mean he could stock up and shop less often, which would make a huge difference to his daily life.
