Jasper (full name Hubert Thompson) was born in Jamaica but has lived in the UK for most of his adult life. He has always tried to help those less fortunate than himself but, in the last couple of years, has become more and more aware of the increasing number of homeless people on the streets of Bristol.

Heartbroken to wake up to hear this news this morning. We got to know Rob over the last year taking him food from donations made by City fans. Such a friendly and positive person who took real joy in helping others. Rob’s Sunday roasts for the homeless were legendary. RIP Rob ❤️ https://twitter.com/HBHomeless/status/1356716789405736960
