An online campaign aimed at helping a homeless man attacked by thugs in Blackpool was launched this afternoon.
The GoFundMe online page hopes to raise £3,000 for Igor Gieci, 55, and said he had been “spat on and attacked regularly”.
It added: “He’s had his possessions stolen on a regular basis. This poor guy has been beaten to a pulp by youths and had all of his stuff stolen once again.
“We are now asking for all your help to raise enough money to get this man a flat and buy the basics for him to live safely, and to make him not be a vulnerable target anymore.
“Igor deserves to live in safety and not be abused like this no longer.”
