‘Christmas is a traditionally a time for giving, particularly to the less fortunate members of society, but one homeless man was prepared to hand over everything he had.
The man, named Robbie, offered a 22-year-old student £3 to help her get home safely after a night out – and now she is hoping to raise enough money to help him off the streets.
Dominique Harrison-Bentzen, who studies at the University of Central Lancashire, has so far raised over £9,000, after asking people to donate £3 each in a bid to help Robbie put a deposit on a flat so that he will have an address to seek work.’
Update: Over £32,000 has been raised so far.
