This year the CESW Awards will be supporting the charity Billy Chip
The charity was set up in 2018 to continue the legacy of Billy Abernethy-Hope a twenty year old ambulance driver from Bristol who was the inspiration and idea behind the Billy Chip
After helping support the homeless at Christmas, Billy felt disheartened at how little support the general public give to them. Many people donate to charity on a regular basis but Billy was surprised at how small the percentage of these donations were given directly to those who need it, living rough on our streets.
The Billy Chip is a unique safe and secure platform which allows the public to directly donate to rough sleepers without the fear of their donation being misused for drugs or alcohol.
