“A reformed drug addict has launched an appeal to find the schoolboy who helped him turn his life around when he saw him begging and gave him his pocket money.
Ben Hornsby, 36, was living on the streets and asking passers-by for cash in Banbury, Oxfordshire, so he could fund his £50-a-day heroin habit.
Mr Hornsby found himself living rough after he was released from prison where he served a total of three and a half years for drug dealing and handling stolen goods.
But his life changed in September 2015 when a schoolboy approached him outside Tesco and gave him a bottle of water and his £2.50 pocket money.
Mr Hornsby says that gesture was the trigger for him to re-evaluate his life and get clean.
The next day he went to a council-run drug detox centre and stayed for three weeks before being transferred to a rehab programme in Portsmouth where he kicked the habit.
After just two years, Mr Hornsby has beaten his drug addiction, got a flat and now works as a motivational speaker and fitness trainer.”
