A MIDLANDS town has launched an urgent charity campaign to help a 47-year-old man who has found himself without a shed.
Roy Hobbs relocated from central Leicester to Hinckley for work, but did not realise that the home he was moving into was somehow devoid of sheds.
He has now spent six days without anywhere to put his lawnmower, smoke or simply sit and family believe he may not last the fortnight.
Hobbs said: “I just stand on the lawn, my insides churning, my adrenal medulla screaming at me to break for shelter.
“I had a fantastic shed at my old place. Well, two sheds. Four actually. There must be one here. There must be one.”
Campaigner Joanna Kramer said: “We’ve had offers of pre-loved sheds, but only a brand new one will give Roy the course of woodstaining and shelf-building he needs to be rehabilitated.
“We have to raise at least £400 before next Sunday. Time is running out.”
