Get George A Home ♥️

George is a homeless gentleman I met in Costa a few weeks ago. I noticed him because he looked like the saddest man in the world. I spoke to George and found out he was homeless. He told me he  had come up to my local town after leaving the Newcastle area due to anti social behaviour, threats from others and generally  feeling very vulnerable where he had been placed. At 67 I can't imagine how awful that must have been.  I continued to see George on and off and the need to help him grew. On Tuesday night I saw him trying to sleep in a cafe doorway and I asked him if he would like somewhere to stay and he's been with us since. George isn't in the best health and should not be sleeping on the streets now of ever.
  We are currently housing George in a little flat about our garage - he has access to a shower, a bed a TV  and everything he needs for now. We are doing what we can but obviously George needs his own home. I have spoken to some lovely organisations today but we come back to the same thing - they can't guarantee a permanent place for George or a suitable one and I really don't want him to end up in a hostel type place again in the same situation he was in before. I would love for George to have his own place but we need some help to get him there. I'm hoping we can raise enough money to get him started with a bond and a months rent or two,  until he gets on his feet and can access the help he is entitled too.  I will be fully responsible for the funds and will pay the relevant fees etc once we have some accommodation in place. I will also of corse keep everyone updated as to where we are at.

Please donate if you can, even the smallest amount collectively can make a big difference. George needs a forever home and I am doing my best to get him one ♥️

Thanks so much
