One of Britain’s oldest surviving prisoners of war faces being forced into a care home against his will after his local council refused to pay for his home help.
Robbie Clark, a 96 year-old war hero and ex-POW, has spent more than £50,000 of his life savings to pay for 24-hour care at his home in Burnt Oak, North London.
Now the veteran, who was one of the British soldiers who survived Hitler’s 1,000-mile death march across Europe in 1945, only has enough money to last another three months.
Mr Clark’s son Mike, 58, has been in a two-year battle with Brent Council over funding his father’s care since the pensioner lost the use of his legs after a heart operation in 2012. Please support if you can: www.gofundme.com/l7vuio EVERY PENNY DONATED GOES TO ROBBIE!
