John worked in the licensed trade for over 30 years. He sold his home and invested all his savings into keeping the pub going. But the strain on his family was irreparable and when the pub company’s tenancy agreement terms changed for the worse, the pressure became too much. John was forced to close his pub because he couldn’t pay the bills, he was left homeless and with no money to pay off his debts. He turned to Licensed Trade Charity for help in finding a home. We were able to expedite John’s application for a home with Anchor Trust. He moved into a new flat within weeks of contacting us.
