From sleeping in a car to being under a roof

11th November 2015

If you've been following the story, of the homeless couple and their three dogs, sleeping in a car since April, then the generosity of listeners will blow you away as to what has since happened.

This is the couple:

Here's the amazing Mel, who tells us how volunteers helped clear the garage room to make it into a warm dry space for them

This is Kev who spear-headed the clear out with Ben from Dash Drive who kindly loaned the Luton van, and collected a double bed from listener Sharon and Megan

Since then, the homeless couple have been supported by St Petroc's who have sorted out finances to support a more permanent housing solution, plus Coastline Housing and the help of the local MP.

Thank You

We are delighted so many people have gone out of their way to help - and that's why we are taking part in the Eden Project Sleepout on 19 November.  If you are coming - we look forward to seeing you there - and if you'd like to help, please donate via texting giving for the Amber Foundation and St Petroc's Society who help homelessness - together let's end Youth Homelessness
