    Story

    As Christmas approaches I find it really hard to see homeless people living on our streets. Even worse is the knowledge that they are far more likely to be provided sheltered accommodation by our council if they are a single mother with a child, a drug addict or an alcoholic. If they are none of these but just happen to be out there then they are at the back of the queue.

    I know a young chap Andy, he will be 31 on the 17th of December. He is charming, polite and very friendly and cordial to all who take the time to stop and speak with him. He was pushed back for the ‘Bus’ despite having been told he would be given a place and was told he should go to Birmingham (what in heaven’s name for other than to get him off MK Council’s list..). His key worker has not nor will give up the fight for him. Life has felt him a bad hand but I have a gut feeling that with the right direction and a decent job, Andy can and will make something of himself.

    So, if you are near Costa or Next in CMK and you see him sitting on the pavement, please, stop and say hello and wish him a Very Happy Birthday for the 17th!

    And if you would like to help, then please do, even a small donation can help make a real difference..

    Thank you…

      Some really great news today. Tonight for the first time in almost 9 months Andy will NOT be sleeping on the street... He will be spending tonight and the coming weeks in a warm bed, with his own shower in safe surroundings in Travelodge, Milton Keynes Central. Andy has my phone number and will keep in touch. I will keep you updated on his progress..

      Went to wish Andy a Very Happy Birthday today. He told me his Key Worker had secured him a place in secure accommodation from 23rd December. This is wonderful news - but MK Council - we will be watching to ensure you keep to your word...

      Incredible kind hearted and generous of you to do this for your friend. Most of us would walk past homeless people without ever knowing their story. Thanks for sharing his and I wish him every luck x
