Summary

Washing Machine, Electricity increase

Paid
Grant #83890

Submitted by Charlie Brown on June 26, 2022

Request Details
I need help financially to purchase a decent second hand washing machine as mine has recently broke down and I can't afford to but one and need help towards the cost of this. I cannot use a launderette as it is too far from where I live and I do mot own a car.

£35.00 GBP


I need help towards the electricity costs to run my home. The recent hikes in energy costs mean that whereas once I was able to cover these costs I am now falling short and often my electricity is often on the emergency fund as I am on a key pre-payment meter.

£15.00 GBP


Total amount £50.00
