Hi, and thank you for taking the time to read this little request.
My name is Paul, I started a little courier business back in 2007, after a time of unemployment. My unemployment was caused by a short 12 week stay at one of the Queens Hotels (HMP North Sea Camp).
The reason I was committed to Prison was that during a local Carnival in Luton, I took my then 8 year old son, to the public toilet, as my son went in to the cubicle, I waited outside, seconds later my son started screaming, when I ran in to the toilet there was this Pervert Standing there with his bits out in front of my son, so as any father would do I gave him a slap.
Long story short, is that I received 12 weeks sentence for assault, and Pedo Man walked,
When I was released from prison, I could not find employment because I had a criminal record, no one would touch me, and so with a little help from friends and family I was able to start my own courier business.
Knowing how hard it is to find work, after a sentence (that was not my fault I believe) I now want to give a second chance to 5 people that have had the same bad start, took a wrong turn, made the wrong split decision, it can happen to anyone, you’re in a pub someone is hell bent on starting a fight, you defend yourself and there it is your done, your future is over work wise no one will touch you, or like me you were just defending your family, it can happen to anyone.
Help me help others gain employment and a feeling of self-worth again,
I am trying to raise the money to buy Second hand, vans and pay for the insurance, I have the opportunity for enough work for five people, but the cost of vans and courier insurance is out of my grasp. I’m realistic I don’t want new vans decent second hand vans are around £3500 each and the insurance is £1500.00 Each.
If you feel you can donate then great welcome on board, if you can’t then thank you for your time in reading this.
Can I wish you all well and thank you for your time?
