Story

*NO PHONE, NO MONEY, NO FOOD AND NO WATER. On the 14th - 16th December I will be making myself homeless on the streets of London - outside The Houses Of Parliament. This is in the hope that the funds and awareness raised will aid helping get homeless veterans off the streets and once again into a stable environment - one which they deserve!*

All of us know directly - or indirectly, someone that serves or has served their country.

After serving for 15 years myself and conducting numerous operations globally, along with close friends and collegues; I can honestly say that leaving the armed forces was a tough challenge to overcome. I had the support of great family and friends but sadly, not every veteran does.

Walking around the streets of all major cities in the UK hides a harsh and unfair reality that many of you will walk past not noticing or realise. That reality is, there are currently 7000+ veterans sleeping homeless WITHOUT that support, without loved ones and friends to stand by them: without anything but the bergen they carry and the boots on their feet. THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE AND THIS HAS TO STOP!!

The government needs to start taking care of those that like me, signed a blank cheque made payable to Queen and Country and not those that come looking for a free pass into a world of endless handouts after doing nothing to deserve that help.

The Armed Forces make the pledge that no man or woman is left behind on the battlefield and because the government are not, we need to make it OUR pledge, to leave no veteran out in the cold on home soil.

We need to help our own and most importantly, those that dedicated their lives to the protection of this great nation and we need to ensure that the pace of fundraising and awareness for this much needed support, continues to grow and with your support... we can! Please donate what you can team 👍🏻
