Russell Brand?s wedding gift to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ? Royal Central 
Quote
Following a Windsor council leader calling for the removal of rough sleepers from the streets, Russell Brand has decided to offer housing for the homeless as a wedding gift to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Brand has urged the Slough Borough Council to by a building which will then be given to a local homeless charity ? Slough Homeless Our Concern. The charity helps people who are homeless by providing help for employment and meals via the provision of housing.

He initiated the petition.

The BBC explains the initiative and the actual homeless building lease which ends in April.

I'm lost in translation...I have read his initiative/petition to sign so the council donates a building.

@amabel

Here is the petition, he says he has been involved with SHOC, the homeless organization around Windsor for a number of years, hence probably some journalists said He will make a donation, when he already has, does, and still is involved?!

Petition ? Wedding present for Harry & Meghan: Love for the homeless ? Change.org

Quote
I've been involved with SHOC for a number of years, they are a homeless drop in and assistance facility in Slough, I wrote about them in my book Recovery.

With the gut wrenching irony that only 2018 can provide SHOC themselves are now being made homeless by Slough council, meaning the vulnerable clients that depend on them will be in even more trouble.

But we can fight back on their behalf with the Recovery Movement.

Many of the rough sleepers swept out of Windsor as result of Councillor Simon Dudley's proposed economic cleanse in preparation of Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle will need SHOC and other local facilities to care for them.
As a wedding present for Harry and Meghan and as a rebuke to the low frequency conduct of Councillor Dudley and any who would further victimise the vulnerable, we are asking that Slough Council agree to a "change of use" for a building in the town that will enable SHOC to have a new home.

It will cost them nothing but the ink in the pen to commit to a 'change of use' for this building - you know how easy it is to do that - councils have to do it every time they turn a local shop into a supermarket chain express store.

If you think this would be a great gift for the Royal Couple, a beautiful way to celebrate their love SIGN THIS PETITION.

This is the perfect way to ensure that love and community trump selfishness and profit as well as being the perfect wedding present for a cool couple. Let's face it, what else can we give them? They must have enough toasters.

Sign the wedding card to show your support and to get SHOC and Slough's homeless a permanent home.

And stay tuned for more opportunities to join the Recovery Movement.

A third Conservative councillor has now resigned from the ruling group on Windsor and Maidenhead Council in protest at the leader?s calls to get homeless people off the streets before Prince Harry and Meghan?s wedding.
