One Act of Kindness Changed a Homeless Man’s Life
One person really can make a difference. Here is the story of two veterans, one helping the other to change his life.
Former soldier Phil Webb hit rock bottom after he lost his job and his marriage fell apart. He started drinking and ended up on the streets. One day as he sat on the streets in Carlisle, a chance meeting with a fellow ex-soldier turned his life around. Stephen Finlayson offered Mr Webb a bed for a night and put him in touch with the Royal British Legion. Within a year, Mr Webb had a roof over his head and had even starred in a play. About 18 months after their first encounter, the pair have been reunited.
