To pay for a 2 night stay in an air BnB over Christmas for a struggling family with a 20 month old son living in shared accommodation

I met a lovely young lady and her son at a local playgroup. I started to notice that after the group finished she was in no hurry to get home. I once mentioned it was really cold and she must be looking forward to getting home, this is when she told me she stays out walking most of the time as she doesn’t like her living situation. Her, her husband and toddler son live in shared accommodation whilst saving up to afford something better. All 3 live in 1 room with other people living in the other rooms.  Their plans for Christmas Day is to go out to central London and just walk around seeing the lights because they can’t bear the thought of staying in their 1 room and waiting for a turn to use the kitchen. I thought as a kind gesture I could try to raise funds for a couple of days in an air BnB on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and try to give their young son a happy Christmas. If everyone who reads this donates even £1 I’m sure it would make a family in hard times have something to look forward to. Thanks gratefully in advance and merry Christmas to you ????
