A Thank You to a Police Constable

Just thought you would like to know that Ross got in touch with us at Vulnerable Veterans today after you gave him our leaflet. Our Lucy was able to link him into the Veterans Gateway. He also spoke to Runnymede Borough Council’s housing team and Helen found him temporary accommodation in Croydon.

I met him at Runnymede Civic Centre at 16.47 and got him onto a train to his accommodation.

He had only what he stood up in and we were able to provide him with a Masato Jones duffle bag (and a Masato beanie!) some underwear, toothbrush and paste, a couple of shirts and some Surrey Search and Rescue Haribo.

Ross was most pleased with the sweets as he’d not eaten all day.

It may interest you to know that Surrey Police have supported us since we began, that Runnymede were one of (if not the first) Surrey council to sign up to the Armed Forces Covenant and Masato Jones design fantastic clothes and philanthropically support homeless charities like York Road Project in Woking.

However both Ross and I would like to tell you, you “Did Good” today.

Thank you.
