Thanks for your email asking if I need any more help, before signing us off. I hope you well. 

You'll never guess what, but I prepare for site work you steered me onto. Can't believe I do my final CsCs building quals end of week, and have completed college bricklaying, got my fork truck licence, and now landed a full-time job with Amey starting in 7 days. All thanks to you Bro. 

Can't quite believe life looks so different now from being homeless, just out of HMP Oakwood and banged up at Nic again! Life was such a shitty mess, mum hating on me, sister seriously ill, me depressed, and didn't think I had much hope of ever escaping. But look at things now. With me moving onto my last Health and Safety training and months no trouble from the rozsa's. Can't believe it. 

I want to say thanks for so much time and care you put around me, for my flat, debt getting sorted, sleeping soundly at night not waiting for the door to be kicked in! You have changed my whole life in so, so many ways. So, no more help needed bud, I say farewell with so much hope for what's next. 

I wish you, your family all the very best in the future, keep doing what you do mate for people like me really need people like you in our lives. May the charity continue to do much greater things, you stay safe out there on the streets, and you never know just maybe, I might come and volunteer as one of those weird pastor things you talk about so much. Chance to give back one day. 

Respect to you & peace Bro! 

Warmest regards, Jimmy
