We hear from Andy:
I'm a former heroin and crack cocaine user, I lost my family and my friends and I was turning to crime and I was obviously very scared. I was street homeless and eventually I found myself being accepted into Booth House, Salvation Army.
My support worker showed me there's a way out of addiction. Gave me hope. I'm not capable what The Salvation Army has done for me. I have contact with my daughter, I'm in a relationship, I'm employed, I'm a taxpayer. No longer do I have to use again.
I'm taking part in the London Marathon to raise money for The Salvation Army. It's amazing.

The officers, staff and volunteers of The Salvation Army devote themselves to helping people at the lowest point in their lives -- homeless people who have lost everything, families trapped in poverty and older people who are forgotten and lonely. Without your help we couldn't reach out to all these people in genuine, urgent need. And as the demand for our work becomes greater, we are ever more dependent on your generosity.
Please go to http://www.salvationarmyapp...
and help us reach out to those in need.
Your gift will enable us to give shelter to a homeless person and the chance of a fresh start in life, to invite lonely older people to one of our centres for a meal and companionship and to provide practical and emotional support to a family living on the breadline.
