Project aim

I aim to attend a 1 week driving license course, get a cheap van, and live in it rather than becoming homeless, and to perform Poetry

About the project

I'm a 47 year old performance poet and compere of the UK festival and traveler community. Check out my work on facebook My page where everything I do goes up for free Or look me up on youtube.this is my youtube channel

I lived on the road for years, but never managed to afford driving lessons, and depend on others for lifts to the many gigs and festivals I attend. I had been in a 5 year relationship where we have a 3 year old son, Tyger. This has come to an end, and I will soon find myself with nowhere to live, and no access to the van we shared to go to events, which I'd converted myself along with my mate Skippy. If I get my license, I can get a van and insure it, carry on organizing, performing at all the events which , along with my boy, make up my life. I don't know any other way. I've climbed over some enormous obstacles to be where I am, and live from spreading the love, sharing music and words on the UK scene.

I'm planning on putting together a book in the near future, as a lot of people have asked for one. People who put a decent donation in can have me come and perform, or compere their stage free of charge, subject to how much fuel it would cost to get there. That's me, plain and simple. I have no way to borrow it or access funds this quickly in any other way... thanks and hopefully I'll get some of your support.

     No harm in trying. I'm sure some people will criticize this attempt, but that is up to them.
