Weʼre raising £1,000 to spend 24 hours with the Homeless Veterans in London on Christmas Day 2019

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

This year I am trying to raise some funds but first I want to lose 5 stone. For each stone I lose I will pledge £50 towards the target.

I am giving up Christmas (2019) to spend 24 hours on the streets of London with the homeless veterans. I am going to assist a drop in shelter with giving food and clothes & I would like to raise £1000 so I can buy sleeping bags and tents to be able to hand these out.

If you could even donate a few sheckles it will all be worthwhile to them.

71 military personnel and veterans have taken their lives in 2018, ITV News understands, some say this is 74, now that is still 74 too many.

I feel we can all do a little to support others, I would like to give Veterans something in return for their service. Please give what you can to help those who have helped others.

I will keep updating this page as we go, and I am trying to get the Company I work for to sponsor us.

    Hi Just an Update as you can see in the photo below, I have now lost 1 stone 7 pounds and will keep going until I hit either the 5 stone, or my BMI indicates that i have lost 5 stone of body fat.... As you are all aware Muscle is heavier than fat and I am changing shape but the weight is not moving.. I have made a promise to the Homeless service personnel and I will not fail. Thanks for all the support, messages etc, please donate a £1 if you can it only takes a minute and worth every second to them on the streets. Thanks

    Hi All, So far I have had little success in raising the funds, however work continues to drum up support. I have even had a Cheque from a lovely lady for £20 and will be putting this on here. My work colleagues have pledged money and soon the totals will start top move. I have lost 11 pounds now in just under 2 weeks (1 week in the Gym) I am determined to not fail my Brothers and Sisters in arms. I will do this, and with a little support from you I will achieve what I set out to do. Thanks Tony

About the fundraiser

Being an Ex-serviceman myself and having been lucky in Civi Street, I can climb into a warm bed each night, some are not as fortunate as me, thus the reason I am trying to raise as much as I can to help those who have fallen, or stumbled to the way side.
