    I thought we'd managed to get through December without a homeless family etc. Seems I spoke too soon.

    We have a lad, ex RTR who is sleeping rough in the doorway of Starbucks in Edinburgh. He's been checked out as genuine and in a pretty shitty way.

    I have just begun the process of getting him housed and a roof over his head, but the immediate concern is getting him into some sort of accomodation for a couple of days while this happens.


    Apologies for the brevity of this scrounge, obviously time is scarce and lots to be done.

    If you have a quid or two you can spare, please chuck it at us, then we can get this lad fed, warm and somewhere to kip.

    Managed to find permanent accommodation in Edinburgh from Wednesday next week.

    I just need to square away nine days of warm and dry accom.

    Thanks for the help so far, please keep it going, I've promised this fella he'll be dry for Chrimbo and I'd feel bad telling him I'd lied :)
