When Andrew from Exeter heard that his local NHS walk in centre was going to be closed, he called up his friends and decided to do something about it.  After launching a petition on the 38 Degrees website and organising events outside of the centre.  He managed to get the local newspaper to support his campaign and eventually saved the centre from the axe!

Chris from Birmingham saw that his local HSBC bank had “anti-homeless” spikes fitted to stop people from sheltering outside.  He launched a petition and put pressure on the bank, supporters then posted on the bank’s social media accounts and wrote to the manager.  A few months later HSBC brought out an angle-grinder and removed the nasty spikes!
