Help Harry Get On His Feet

We need money to help Harry get on his feet so he can find a job and a place to live

We did it
On 14th February 2018 we successfully raised £70 with 6 supporters in 14 days

This lad named Harry is down on his luck and has been sat outside ASDA Weymouth asking for work. 

He's 22 and has been homeless since his 21st when social services stopped supporting him.

In true Weymouth fashion everyone is getting together to try and find him some work. But it's not as simple as that - there are so many barriers to homeless people getting a job. When you have no clean clothes to interview in, no place to live while you work up some cash, and can barely make it day through day while you start work, it's easy to get stuck in the cycle of poverty.

We can't all find Harry a job. But we can chip in to help him get on his feet. If you can spare the cost of a pint, or have a tenner going spare, it would make all the difference in the world to someone who is trying to help themselves get sorted.

Please note that he hasn't specifically asked for donations. This has been started to help him get himself sorted out if and when someone can offer him a job.

He says he will be around ASDA as much as possible. He's trying to go somewhere busy for the best chance of getting work, but for that reason it's essential we act quickly because he's more likely to get moved on quicker being in such a busy/commercialised area. If for any reason we can't find him again to get this money to him, we will donate it to local homeless charities.

In the meantime, if you know of any jobs going, please get in touch. 

If you have any help to offer, any information, or any questions, you can get in touch with either Abbi or myself on Facebook (Abbi is your best bet!)
