A homeless veteran who slept rough in Manchester has been given new hope by a military charity.
Rick MacGillivray thrived in the Army - but developed problems when he returned to Civvy Street.
He became an alcoholic and committed a minor crime.
The covenant-funded Ex-Forces Action Network offered Rick support through a project to help veterans like him.
