Story
News 2

Exciting news! I'm now working as a delivery driver for a supermarket. I've been there for a few weeks and I'm really enjoying the work 🚚

It's odd getting back into the swing of full-time work again but it feels good after all these months waiting to start 🙂

Thanks to all my supporters for their help in getting me here.

Great news! Next week I’m signing the contract to a flat and I’ve been offered a job as delivery driver. This time last year I was rough sleeping and now, most importantly, my smile is back!

I want to thank everyone who donated and Beam themselves; this change in luck means so much to me and I’m finally getting my life back.
