Accommodation Needed

Yanna, a young Ukrainian woman, and her daughter aged 8, are looking for accommodation from October/November, in the Box/ Corsham area. Yanna has a full-time job in Budgens and her daughter goes to school in Corsham. Unfortunately, the sponsors they have been living with can no longer sponsor them from the end of October, so they are looking for either a family willing to sponsor them, someone with a room they’re happy to rent, or a flat that has reasonable rent. Please call Paul Langley on 07836 617916 or Lee Towler on 01225 743706 if you can help. Many thanks.
