    Story

    ****HELP NEEDED PLEASE****

    When you look at this photo what exactly do you see

    Well, I have to admit to my utter shame, I didn't see anything. I walked past him as if he wasn't there. My beautiful wonderful daughter on the other hand, refused to walk past. Instead she asked if she could use her pocket money to buy him some food and a drink. A trip to Greggs, a cup of tea and a sausage roll later, we were sat talking to him.

    This man above is Steve, Steve is ex British Army. He suffers from PTSD and has lost his wife and children due to it! He served with the Royal Logistics Corps in Iraq on three tours. Now any servicing or ex Armed forces knows, your service number is burned into your brain. It's all he has left and the 30 minutes we spent with him made me a re-evaluate my situation and position in life!! At any point any of us are a accident or break down away from where he is now sat!!

    His new home is the door way of the British Heart foundation in Yeovil. He has tried the Royal British Legion and other forces charity's for a little help. Due to his current situation he can't get help. He is not asking for anything for free.

    He had a small van until recently but could no longer afford to run it. The money he got from selling it he sent to his children. He just wants to work so he can save for a small place, once he gets an address he can then get the help he needs and deserves! He has paid he dues, served his country. So if your in the Yeovil area please contact me so I can point him in your direction.

    If my 11 year daughter can find it in herself to help him, then sure a hell I can. She has said she wants to give her next months pocket money. I have no idea how I am going to help Steve but I going to try!

    I am going to try to get a crowd funding to get a small amount to get a room share for a few months so he can then get the help from the Legion, get a job, get his life back!

    All I am asking for is £1 donation, my daughter is starting it with £10 pocket money. Please can you give £1. £1 really could change Steve life. He was prepared to serve and die for his country as all us serving are and ex forces were and would do again if we were ever needed as would he! Please share and donate £1 or what ever you can afford.

    Thanks and let's get Steve sorted!!!!
