On Sunday 20th November on a glorious Autumn/Winter's morning one of the Riff Raff Society's biggest advocate's rose to a challenge that was set for him by the Society just five weeks previously.
Tim Burton applied for a Riff Raff Grant after experiencing injury and depression.
The grant secure's his accommodation through an uncertain period of his life leaving him able to accept treatment from the NHS. After visiting Tim and hearing of his situation over the past year or so it was clear Tim needed a Riff Raff Loveboost.
Damien and Tim both came to understand completely what the Riff Raff Society is all about. At the end of the race overcome with emotion Damien couldn't quite express how pleased he was not only to have been supported so generously by his friends but also how proud he was to have assisted Tim whilst also inspiring himself, his kids and those friends out there in social media-land that also need a lift. Tim has accepted our help with great dignity and warmth and has been very kind in sharing his thoughts on how the Society hasn't just helped him in a financial sense. He has made some friends. Welcome on-board brother.
Best of luck to Tim and congratulations to Damien
This is how we do it x
