Meet John…

He’s been homeless since 2003.

I’d never met him before today but he’s someone who you regularly see on the streets and in the car parks of Jersey.

Since coming back from Calais I’ve had lots of people say that charity starts at home – and whilst I don’t think it should end there, I do agree that we should do what we can to help people in our own ‘backyard’.

So I did.

A pair of socks, a hat, thermal insulating innersoles, a packet of biscuits, two bags of nuts, a head torch, batteries, an umbrella, a waterproof coat and a fiver later my first Christmas presents were bought… and one man was all the happier for it.

Share the love and have a Happy Christmas x
