The Bridge Trust has published Forty Years War, the autobiography of one of our former residents Peter Hendrix. It charts Peter's life from family domesticity to living on the streets and is told in a moving but light-hearted manner.
Peter states "I'd been planning to write my life story for some time and when the Bridge Trust offered to publish it, I jumped at the chance. I hope people reading Forty Years War will understand a little more about how homelessness, substance abuse, and relationship breakdowns can effect just about anyone."
Chief Executive of The Bridge Trust John Handley comments "Peter's book offers insights for anyone who has walked past a homeless person and asked themselves 'I wonder how they came to be here?' It's an honest and sometimes shocking account of one man's life, but at the same time it is often humorous and ultimately uplifting. It offers real insights into how charities such as the Bridge Trust are critically important in helping to get homeless people off the streets."
Forty Years War is available directly from The Bridge Trust at £9.99 plus p&p. All proceeds go directly to helping homeless people in our region.
