The Watson is our launch ROOF coatbag.
Its designed to be urban and functional and to deliver on warmth, comfort and wearability... and to convert easily from a coat to a sleeping bag... Ultimately the WATSON has been developed to alleviate the discomfort and pain of homelessness.
Donate £50 today and your generous contribution will be put towards the cost of making a WATSON for a rough sleeper. Each WATSON has a serial number which you will be given once your donation has been processed and in time when our tracker website is fully functional you will be able to follow your donation's journey and the people whose lives you have changed by your generosity.
Remember that it is the objective of homeless agencies to lift rough sleepers out of their situation and it may be that each WATSON will comfort many people in its lifetime and be passed onto the next person as each one moves on to accommodation.
As our programme grows and the more awareness there is of this project and product, so will the amount of homeless people we support in getting themselves back into the mainstream through training and employment with us and making ROOF itself.
The WATSON is currently only available in an XL size which is suitable for anyone over 5ft8". We have graded and prepared for all sizes from babe in arms up to XXL but these will follow later. At the moment, we're just concerned with supplying ROOF to the majority who an XL will fit.
We're using several different combinations of colours for the exterior and interior of the WATSON so we can guage what the end users likes, so when you donate towards a WATSON it could end up being black with a khaki lining and orange zips or navy blue with silver lining and yellow zips. You'll find out when we allocate a ROOF to your donation!
We are also preparing a scale of thank yous to those who donate, in the form of adventures ranging from a visit to our workshop to a day's sailing on Challenge Wales (which we sponsor). Just a small way of saying thank you for your selfless support.
