Billy Abernethy-Hope was killed in a motorcycle accident in Thailand in 2018. Before he went there, he came up with a project to help homeless people in Bristol. His family has brought the project to life in his memory. People can buy tokens which the homeless can then use to spend on hot drinks and other items.
The Billy Chip
Their mission is to provide a worldwide platform which brings local people and their partners together to deliver, kindness, compassion and a free hot drink to homeless people living rough on our streets.
The Billy Chip can be given to any homeless person instead of money, the recipient can redeem the Billy Chip in any participating outlet for a drink, food or collect them up for a night in a safe warm place. The Billy Chip can be purchased for £2 via any participating retail outlet.
