Joint-chairman David Sullivan and his son Dave Jnr are thrilled to be in a position to help homeless hero Stephen Jones.

It is now well documented they have found Steve, who was sleeping rough near Manchester Arena when a bomb went off at a concert being given by American singer Ariana Grande on Monday evening.


Hours later, Steve had been found, and the Joint-Chairman and his son are now working out a plan to pay the hero’s rent for the next six months, while also providing him with new clothes and opportunities to find work in the future.

DS said: “Dave and myself were both hugely impressed by the bravery shown by Steve, the emergency services and all those who rushed to the aid of those affected by the Manchester attack.

“This was a terrible incident, but the response of the people of Manchester has been one of bravery, togetherness and resilience – the hallmarks of what makes Britain such a fantastic place.

“Steve was just one of hundreds of people who forgot about their own safety and rushed to the aid of others, and we were both moved by his story.”
