Hols4heroes (June - fresh one)

#1
Will call job jobbed on the other June case. Many thanks to all who donated and took part in auctions etc.

Had a call in yesterday from a bloke who has bubbled his pal. He'd discovered that since splitting up from his Mrs he'd ended up homeless, feeling duty bound to send everything he had in support of his family.

His accounts have been closed down, lost his job literally all he had is a buffalo (which I'll buy off him :D) and what he stands up in. He feels useless because he can no longer support his kids and hasn't seen them for 10 weeks, he feels ashamed to let them see him like this.

We took him off his 5 star park bench yesterday and put him in a 2 star B&B for the night, today the quest to home him and find him a job starts, as well as getting a couple of decent meals down him.

I've got SSAFA involved and also after speaking to his Mrs, combat stress.

I'm going to find him some accommodation, and ensure he immediately claims all the benefits he's entitled to. But in the meantime its time for the Hols4heroes QRF to fire up the love bus and try to sort him out before SSAFA et al join the party for long term help etc.

Not sure whats needed yet, but I imagine another three or four nights in the B&B before I've found a pad, then perhaps assistance to a bond and some rent.

I've got some white goods and a bed left over from a couple of donations over the last couple of months, and SSAFA generally tip up with stuff like that.

He also needs some clothes, so will ensure he gets squared away.

11 years served, giz a lift to get him back on his feet, should be a nice simple on to sort out.

More to follow ref 'the Mrs' she is OK, none fault break up of marraige, she's struggling because of niaivity regarding help she's entitled to etc.

No family to turn to and doing her best with three young kids. Relevant agencies will be informed today and I'm about to send £100 in Tesco / Asda vouchers because its quite apparent she is struggling to feed the nippers at the mo. Also told her not to worry about school uniforms etc as she is panicking about September and needing shoes and making what she has last.

WTF - INCOMING :wink:

Two lovely but stupid women have just walked the circumference of Jersey [48.1 miles] in aid of Hols4H ... there's £400+ somewhere up the pipeline, once they've mugged everyone they need to mug.

Can you bridge the gap?
