    Story

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    It's the year 2017 and get still we have people sleeping on our streets. Heading into winter this is not acceptable. Kevin who sleeps at John Lewis in Glasgow inspired us because his grandparents fought for Britain in World War 2 he thought he would be welcome here. He is a fully qualified welder with papers who should be on £20 an hour and contributing to our economy. He doesn't drink smoke or do drugs but our country turns him away. Now 3 years later he is still on out streets, 3 months of this being outside John Lewis. If you see him say hello.

    We are here to help feed and keep the homeless warm this winter. We do a food run on a Sunday because in Glasgow missions etx and they struggle to get a warm meal if any at all. Also on a Wednesday we will take in Footwear, jackets and anything else we get donated and give it out personally.

    We need things like flasks, folding tables, insulated bags, fresh clothes if we get people an interview. We also need hoodies and banners so it is clear to all homeless people what we are in town to do. Eventually we may need a van and a premises so we can feed them sheltered as it's about to hit hard winter.

    Any funds raised will be displayed publically in out group and all spending will be clear before we spend any money. This is not our fund this is your fund.

    Now help us help them and potentially save lives this winter.

    Thank You and God Bless
    Kenny and Daniel

      So far we have purchased 2 insulated bags to keep the food warm we take in on a Sunday and a folding table to give out soup and tea etc. I am trying to negotiate the best prices for socks, gloves and hats and in talks with various people about getting these people a job. Once again Thank You.

    I am a student in Glasgow and it breaks my heart seeing people all over our streets in 2017. Especially when they are qualified and sober
