From a childhood spent in poverty, growing up on the streets of London in war torn Balham, Bob went on to achieve great things.
Bob Parsons has painted a picture of hope for many who live in poverty and deprivation and lack the essentials of having parents, health, food, water and/or education services.
The 'no frills' Charity Bob founded and registered in 1994 (no. 141258), continues to provide hope for many of the Handicapped, Orphaned, Poor and Exploited children of the world.
'A Journey of Hope is the extraordinary story of an apparently ordinary man who has squeezed three times more into his seventy-odd years, as the rest of us - and who is not finished yet. Go on - buy this book.'
Jamie Wrench 'The Friend'
'This book is a cracking read'
'The London Rotarian'
'I have read the book three times'
Win Prior Hemel Hemptstead
'The modest record of Bob's life should give readers a chance to learn of a highly significant humanitarian and his far from modest achievements.'
Dr. Stuart Rees Sydney
'I so much enjoyed the book that I bought ten copies to send to friends at Christmas.'
