We've been made aware of a case involving a 23 yr old recently medically discharged soldier, soon to be homeless with his family (Wife and two nippers under 3) All relevant agencies now aware, but as we've shown in the past no one has a quicker flash to bang time than us. Current housing is a no go and they will have to be out of there shortly, am currently liasing and will continue with Spanish Daves help to liase with local to him landlords and estate agents, with a view to getting him into semi permenant accomodation rather then Bed and Breakfasts and sitting on council waiting lists in hostels. This isn't a thread to voice outrage at systems, and the government etc, its what Help them out was set up for, its a call for assistance to a bloke and his family in the crap, and thats what is happening. When he's in and squared away we'll write letters to Bon Jovi and Douglas Hurd. As stated, I'm on the assistance bus, speaking with SSAFA RBL and Regtl assosiation and Norcross House all of which takes time, this guys time is almost out and homelessness simply isn't going to happen. Any help, as per the normal is hugely and gratefully appreciated. Paypal: Hooverbags@msn.com HSBC Sort: 40-02-00 Acct: 22286017 LloydsTSB Sort: 77-51-01 Acct: 54713568 Both accts, C Lee. For those people reading this who are new to the forums click these links www.helpthemout.co.uk www.sgtslingsby.co.uk I will come up with figures needed over the next couple of hours. We already have a head start with the Somme cash kindly raised and donated over the weekend. My gut feeling is around 1200 to get him in and secure in a house / flat thats big enough. Then I'll cross the 'Scrounging for furniture etc' bridge when we've got him a roof. Dig deep folks, every pound helps. Auction items to follow.
