It is said that you should never judge a book by its cover, yet the moment I laid eyes on George, that's exactly what I did!
And as I watched the aged member of Manchester's homeless fraternity, walking slowly along the street, hoping to collect enough spare change in his dirty and tattered polystyrene cup to fund his next meal, I couldn't help but think to myself ... How do I possibly avoid giving this scruffy looking man any of my hard earned cash?
But in an unexpected turn of events and a surreal series of meetings, the man I had quickly pre-judged, revealed his extraordinary life.
Funny, sad and heartwarmingly bizarre.
This is George's story!
