It was Matt’s birthday the day this photo was taken. He chatted to us about the special item he’d brought with him.

“A guy who works on the streets, we talk music together. I love playing music, I just want to spread the positive energy with the people, music spreads a good positive message. One day I gave him a beautiful tigers eye and one day he gave this to me. It’s special, it brings me good karma!”

Matt’s message to other young people on the street is: “don’t be afraid of what comes across your path – keep coming to do what you need to do and you’ll get there.”

Matt also said, “I just want to say JoiningHands does amazing work, I appreciate their good massages!!”
