The house was gutted, with wallpaper hanging off the walls, no carpets and in a general state of disrepair. She doesn't know where to start with DIY, has limited funds and is feeling a little helpless with her situation.
My mother is rallying people round to help her get straight and aside from volunteers I think what she needs most is things like paint, wallpaper, paste polyfiller, sand paper, basic tools, paint brushes, rollers, trays and long shot - carpets. If anyone is a position to help out with anything, please send me a pm and I can arrange collection before next week.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
