This Homeless Man Is Willing To Work For Free, To Make His Life ‘Worth Living’

Anthony Johnson, 37,  left the note outside his tent offering to work for free in the hope somebody would help change his life.

Anthony has been homeless for nine years and currently sleeps in a tent next to a bus stop in Hastings, East Sussex.

Last week he wrote a note and left it outside his tent offering to do ‘anything to earn a living’.

The note was spotted by Charlotte Howard, 16, who said it "broke her heart". She then decided to take a photo of it and share it on Facebook. Along with a friend, she is now trying to set up Anthony in a caravan.

Charlotte said she spotted the caravan being sold for £100. She and a friend Toni Pearce decided to set up a GoFundMe page to raise £300 towards buying the caravan and kitting it out for Anthony.

She added: ‘There is a caravan for sale and it cost £100. The goal is £300 as it needs some work done and we’d need to get some basic necessities for him. Any money will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.’

Nelson Smith, a landscape gardener has also contacted Anthony about working as a gardener.

Anthony said: ‘The reaction after Charlotte posted the note was weird - I was suddenly bombarded with things.’

Anthony’s now getting a caravan kitted out for him and a new job.
