Story

We met Mike and his lovely dog Bonnie on the street in Cheltenham over the winter. We saw how he sat through minus temperatures and seemed to really struggle with things going on within himself. We talked and I got to know him. There is a lot more to any person living on the street than one would assume if one takes the time to understand them.

This is someone of sensitivity and of strength but he has been through a lot and lost everything in his life as he knew it.

He is an ex-serviceman. Like other homeless people he has underlying health problems. The services seem to have let him down so far and he is at the bottom of the waiting list like so many. We would like to help as many of the homeless in Cheltenham as possible going forward and aim to set up a charity fundraising page etc.

For now we have encouraged Mike to look at temporary accommodation options to get him off the street while he waits for something more permanent long term. He now has a tent and a safe place to pitch it on a campsite with basic amenities. We would like to raise enough money to pay for at least 4-6 months cheap pitch rate and basic living costs so that he can move on and build from there. Mike has an array of practical skills, he is knowledgeable and can turn his hand to most things. We believe he, like all others in this position, have a lot to give if given some support to rebuild their lives.

Mike is in our opinion a talented and hard working man with pride and dignity that he really wants to achieve a sense of normality and peace of mind; the sort of normality and peace of mind that we can all tend to take for granted unless you have lost this yourself.

Please donate to this cause and with a view of any excess of over the amount aimed for we can help others.

Thank you !
