Story
News 4

It's been a while since my last update. I've been busy but for a great reason. I'm back in full time work!👍

After my refresher lessons I felt confident enough to start applying for driving jobs and last month I was given a contract driving refuse trucks in London. 🚛

It's great to have a job with enough hours and good pay. I now want to start looking for a new place to live. So everything is going well - a big thank you for all of your help!

Happy to be back on the road

With my campaign fully funded I was able to book my first driving refresher session. I was a bit nervous as it was the first time I've driven a lorry since 2012 and the first time I have ever driven on the left. I did four hours and we drove to all the way to another town.

The teacher said I did well but told me I should have a bit more practice. Luckily I have another 16 hours of training to go and will move into the bigger vehicles next time. After this I can go to the recruitment agency and look for work. Thank you to all of my supporters!

Alex and I at my campaign launch

I've now raised enough money to book my refresher driver training - after that I can start looking for work! 🚚🎉

I wish all my supporters good health and good luck and I thank you all very much for this help. For me this is a great support in turning my life around, and giving me the best chance that my hopes will became a reality.
