Meet Les Sharpe:
A short video of Les was put up on Facebook, for those of you that have it and are interested:
He's a 76 year old top bloke who who needs a bit of help.
Les is a pensioner and likes to mainly keep to himself but will happily have a chat to you to tell you his life story.
Les is currently homeless, living out of his Toyota van on the streets.
In recent times the only roof over his head has come to the end its life which means Les will be without options.
Les would love to stay in his local caravan park but needs to find a caravan because he is not allowed to live from his car there.
Les is an ex professional solo speedway rider from the early 70s who raced in Australia and England. He's legendary, but humble about it.
Typical of his generation, Les has worked hard all his life. He's been a farrier, motor bike mechanic and has helped run a business.
Les has had some terribly tragic events in his life but has been amazingly stoic and worked through it all, but those events still haunt him.
He's been through loss no one should have to endure. Despite all this, he continues to live a clean life and has not turned to drugs or alcohol.
If you can help this all round top bloke with a gift toward a new van or if you have one in the back yard getting no love, please contact us. Les' new home doesn't need to be fancy, just registered and roadworthy to meet the tenancy terms of the caravan park.
This bloke deserves a break - can you help him?
