Please email if you know a safe place Jeff can park, eg private land, a yard or carpark.  jeffsvanbristol@gmail.com  He wouldn't disturb anyone and the fund can pay for electricity if that's an option. 

Also, please email if you know Jeff and would like to join us in offering some informal, longer-term support to Jeff. 

Don't donate to our page if you want the money to go to Jeff, please email us as we have a community account with the Credit Union (Jeff's Van Fund) and can give you payment/transfer details.

Thank you for all your support for Jeff.  Valerie meets with him regularly as she's known him 12 years and shows him your lovely messages. 

We are now over our goal of 10k and as there are other projects out there desperate for funds, GoFundMe have arranged that money donated after we reached 10K can be legally shared amongst the 3 charities listed below.  Feel free to donate direct to them.   People who have donated since 10k can ask for a refund by emailing GoFundMe.    Thanks for your continued interest in helping end homelessness .

Jeff is very private so would like the location of his van kept quiet so best not to take photos showing the outside and location of the van.  Thank you  for all the amazing love that has poured into this fund , equal to the amazing love  and  courage that Jeff  radiates. 

Huge thank you to everyone and much love,

Jeff, Deasy and Valerie xx

Hello everyone,

Jeff is so pleased with his van and has been going back early to stay warm, watch some TV and sometimes cooks for himself. He's looking more rested already.

You have all done him proud... this is life-changing! Everyone who donated, shared, offered help or told friends about Jeff's page have contributed.

Could we ask for a little more help on Jeff's behalf? We got him a new bottle of gas but need to fit a new regulator for Jeff to have gas for his marine heater or cooker.

Caravan/Motorhomes gas regs are not as strict as houses so if you know someone experienced or a trained gas fitter who could help, please get in touch via jeffsvanbristol (at) gmail.com

Once that's done we want to get a Gas Certificate but may need to affix the bottle to the floor or have the bottle in a cage? If you know about regulations for a 15kg bottle and can advise/help, please get in touch.

And please do get in touch if you would like to offer ongoing informal support to Jeff, now or in the future.

With love,

Jeff, Deasy and Valerie
