Soldiers Off the Streets charity is campaigning on the streets of Preston.
The charity aims to provide clothes and food but more importantly rehabilitation and advice on alcoholism, drug abuse, housing and employment.
Although called Soldiers Off the Streets they try to help all ex-service personnel be they from the Army, RAF or Navy, from past or present conflicts.
Founded in 2010 they are a group of unpaid dedicated volunteers determined to help ex service people whose lives have been affected by homelessness.
They mention that after ‘what they have been through for the country they love, to be forgotten and homeless is a national disgrace.’
The charity’s objectives are the relief by charitable means of homeless service personnel but they need donations to achieve their aim.
They ask if you want to help them help forgotten service people whose lives have been affected by homelessness to please give what you can. 100% of the donations go towards the cause, the running of the charity.
In Preston they are looking for donation an also have various coloured wristbands labeled ‘Soldiers Off the Streets’ for just £3 each.
