A long time carer, activist, community campaigner and notorious news raider, Paul Yarrow has been attending our #CastleCanteen for over 6 months. Voted 42nd 'most annoying' man in Britain in 2010, Paul has appeared in over 200 live news reports from 2007- 2013 gaining national and international media attention. Paul, frustrated by media prejudice and peoples' attitudes and treatment towards the marginalised and people whose appearance did not confirm to a certain aesthetic, saw news raiding a powerful antidote to this. Nowadays Paul continues to care for those around him and is currently campaigning for his friend Mohammed Arouss who has suffered ongoing mistreatment and injustice by services in place to protect. He is also campaigning to save Divine Rescue, a volunteer-led humanitarian charity that provides support to the homeless and vulnerable in Southwark .
