- Nottingham, UK

David is Ex Army from the 70s ever since his service he has volunteered for the church sending money and aid around the world. Also with the Air Training Corp (ATC). Unfortunately his married broke down due to infidelity not on his part. Resulting in losing his home, his family and all his possession. He was homeless until his divorce settlement which was only enough for a shell of a Narrow boat with no floor, electric, water or gas. Had one set of cloths with no sleeping bag sleeping on the beams. Ssafa and RBL of the Stoke region didn't want to know causing their Ssafa Officer leaving the organisation in discuss to personally help David. We have guys skilled offering services but need resources, plumbers, new clothes etc. He will be appearing on the One Show on the 28th with the Poppy Factory so please check this out for more details. His a real humble guy who has been treated really badly. People have taken advantage of his situation. His business burger van was taken in by the Colwyn Bay Vet Shed charity at his divorce however the guy Colin Rigby looking after it has done a disappearing act and the charity has disclaimed the whole thing. David now lives in his 35ft boat with no money surviving on food banks. At this present time he is still volunteering for the church. Let's give this kind hearted fellow a break. Help us build his house boat and replace his cloth and possibly a holiday. David has also found himself a new sweat heart and wishes to be reunited her soon. I have just set an idea amount to raise however what we can raise would help a great deal toward improving this care giver a retirement his deserves, just him, his love and his boat.
