People moving into an unfurnished flat/house from a hostel, hospital, prison, estranged parents or after separation or domestic abuse with moving costs, a skip, second-hand furniture, white goods, beds, bedding, carpets, curtains etc

Single mothers on basic benefits to replace broken white goods or beds, or to increase family mobility with child bike seats and safety equipment

Those saddled with unsupportable debt with the cost of debt relief orders

Children with beds, storage furniture, sensory toys

Schoolchildren with clothes and shoes, unaffordable outings and activities, books

People needing to travel to attend funerals or hospital appointments with a contribution to their costs

The cold with carpets, heaters, oil tank refills and energy bills

The hungry with fresh and specialist foods not normally provided by foodbanks

The unwell with annual prescriptions, counselling, doctors’ charges

People NEEDING urgent help with what is needed.

    This is by no means an exhaustive list and all cases are considered on merit.

    "I want to say a huge big thank you to Cambridge Aid for all the funds you have given the families and individuals throughout the year.

    It has made such a difference to many families - not just for the essentials, and I can’t tell you how often people have been in tears as the gesture is so poignant for them. The money will definitely make such a difference to the families this year."
