16./ Five minutes later I get asked to buy of hot drink for a homeless chap.
… After the kind lads and the bike light, I was feeling like my faith in humanity was being somewhat restored. So when a few moments later a lad came over and asked for a hot drink, of course I said yes.
I suggested Costa, but he wanted one from Greggs, I asked his name, Shaun. So I buy him a hot chocolate, and give him a fiver , even though he didn’t ask for money, I knew he needed it, and I wanted to save him having to ask.
He told me he was beaten up in the subway a few nights ago, and his stuff thrown in the river that runs past the shops.
Maybe I restored his faith in humanity a bit too.
