But think. As you sit shrugging in those same brown pants and redshirt, holding weeks of grime and stench. No doubt, holding passerby's casting eyes, thoughts and conversation. Sometimes, I can't watch. But hope.
Yes, hope and pray. As you go looking into the pockets of thrash, digging for change, literally, hopefully, three ways to paradise, please, yes, sir, please. And maybe. Just maybe. You will find better and parkgoers can use the bench again. That would be a nice olive branch, to give back, my friend.

Since their first meeting, Luke has visited Jamie a further three times to give the them a couple of hundred pounds raised through donations, to help them get food and a few nights in a hostel. Since the viral post, Luke hopes to be able to make difference through a GoFundMe page designed to help the couple get back on their feet. Luke said: "I wanted to raise some awareness and for people to realise what it is like for those living on the streets.
It's terrible that they are treated that way. You can donate to the GoFundMe page here.
