Cancel charges for Julie & Mark Bell to keep their daughter's room a shrine

Becky Bell was only 7 years old when she died of brain cancer. Her parents have been told they will have to pay £650 a year to keep her untouched bedroom as a shrine for their daughter.
Because the bedroom is not being used and is now considered a spare room they are having to pay £56 a month in "bedroom tax" from April.

Cancel charges from Hartlepool Housing that Julie & Mark Bell are having to pay to keep their daughter's room a shrine. Their daughter was only 7 years old when she passed away, all they have left of her is her bedroom where they must have many memories of her, why should they have to pay to keep these memories alive?

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Because it is unfair they should get the shrine for free, nobody should be put through the trauma of losing a loved one and the people who are charging them should show abit of sympathy instead of making them pay for it!
