    Story

    Hi all. This Christmas guys I bought materials from my own pocket and spent my time constructing a portable temporary shelter for some unfortunate soul who spends there nights on the streets.

    Eventually when I finsihed I walked the streets to find someone but I came across these guys. I talked to them and listened to them and in the end decided to offer them my gift.

    So this is Sion 34 from Swansea and Sherrie 28 from Bath & their Dog Taff.

    He has been homeless for over 13 years, she is escaping domestic violence from her partner in Bath. They have been together for 12 month. Both alcohol dependant but off gear for about 2 weeks.

    He has promised her they will be off the streets by next Christmas. (Fingers crossed)

    They were scared to go to the homeless hub because of theft and the wrong crowd.

    A Maccies £7.99
    A score for some booze
    A weather proof warm shelter for as long as they need it £350ish
    Putting a smile on mine and there's face and giving the a key to a door of something they can call home for a little while........PRICELESS

    The feedback was almost 100% positive guys and I have many more ideas to make things easier and lighter and hopefully cheaper.

    I have had offers of premise to build and legal advice for the people who eventually take "ownership" of these mini homes.

    Who knows, this could be the new craze.

    Please help. Please be as generous as you can. Every little helps. Not a penny will be wasted and I will post updates or answer any questions you may be inclined to ask.

    Kind regards

        I lived on the streets of London for over 20 months and I know how valued a shelter like this would have been for me. Being cold, wet and having to cart all of my "possessions" around in case stolen.
